The second round of the 2019-2020 UCI Cyclocross World Cup goes off on Sunday, Sept. 22 at the Trek CXC Cup. After Maghalie Rochette took the big win in the elite women’s race at the Iowa World Cup last weekend, it’s a day of cyclocross racing Canadians absolutely should not miss. To watch Sundays’s World Cup live in Canada, you can tune into FloBikes.
Like at the opening round, there will be loads of Canadians on the startline like U23 champion Ruby West, Michael van den Ham and Jenn Jackson. While there are some notable absences like Sanne Cant who is skipping this year’s North American World Cup stops. On the men’s side, Mathieu van der Poel is preparing for road worlds, while Wout van Aert is still sidelined with a knee injury sustained at the Tour de France.
With rain in the forecast leading into the weekend, it’s likely racers will face the first mud fest of the year. It’s the third edition of the World Cup to come to Waterloo at Trek’s global headquarters but there has never been muddy conditions. Instead the course has been characterized by fast, dusty conditions.
