Koksijde CX World Cup cancelled due to dangerous winds

by CyclingTips

The fourth round of the Telenet UCI Cyclocross World Cup was cancelled over the weekend, with strong winds battering Koksijde in northern Belgium.

With wind gusts of more than 90km/h, organisers first called off the junior and U23 races before later calling off the entire day’s racing.

Reigning men’s world champion and series leader Wout van Aert (Crelan-Vastgoedservice) took to Twitter to voice his support for the decision:

Round five of the World Cup series will be held in Zeven, Germany on Saturday.
