Lots of steps at this Worlds
Gum boots - it's alwats pretty gooey in early February
Another special section
A great sand box almost 50 yards long
Did I say "Steps"?
Here's another section of steps to bedevil the World's best
Hanka and Katie
Kupfernagel has hit the deck once - notice the muddy butt - and Compton has a clean uniform - she stayed clean and was "Oh, so close" to the gold this year
Snails in Belgium?
I'm not sure what this vendor was thinking but when Paule Bates ordered a double dose of snails, he had no line in front of him at a very Belgian-influenced Worlds. Maybe snails braised in Chimay but these seemed a little out of place.
This is deep-fried country - if it doesnlt fit into the fryer, why bother?
J. Page in the lead!
He was challenging for the title until the last climb before the finish - he stayed in too large a gear and got bogged down - Vervecken came up in a smaller gear and game over. But he was on TV!
Disaster in the sandbox
Vervecken and Franzoi in the sand and Enrico finds the soft spot, dumps and there goes his medal chances
End for Sven
This was a muddy section and Sven dumped on this lsight uphill
