Cyclocross Social Podcast with Erwin Vervecken: A critical look at the world cup reforms (episode 23)
Today, a special episode of the cyclocross social podcast. In todays episode Noah is joined by 3x world champion Erwin Vervecken, who now works for Golazo. They talk about discuss the reforms of the world cup, and what they mean for the sport. After retiring from cyclocross, Erwin Vervecken started working for Golazo. He is the sports technical manager there, which means he is involved in organizing races, arranging start contracts with riders and designing courses for the races Golazo organizes. Golazo organizes the X2o Badkamers trofee, the Ethias cross series and the world cup rounds in Namur and Antwerp. The world cup reforms have put these, and other, races under pressure, as it claimed almost all all Sundays between October and the world championships at the end of January. The datum grabbing, and financial picture, has put a lot of (Belgian) races under pressure. Vervecken discusses why this is, by going into the financial aspect of organizing races. He explains that there is almost no difference in terms of revenue if you organize a world cup or another race. Vervecken also goes into the internationalization of the sport. He thinks this is good, but that it is happening too fast. He thinks that this could lead to the collapse of the sport if it all goes wrong.

Cyclocross Social Podcast: X²O Badkamers Trofee Koppenberg (episode 22)
The cyclocross social podcast is back for the 2021-22 season. In todays episode Noah, Twan and Issam talk about the first round of the X²O Badkamers Trofee which took place on the Koppenberg. There wasnt a lot to say about the mens race, as Eli Iserbyt was just simply a cut above the rest. So, the focus isnt on that, but more on where he stands against the big 3. We also discuss the comments about Pauwels Sauzen potentially becoming Pro Conti to ride a Grand Tour.  As usual there is time to talk about some other riders in the top 10, like the duo Meeusen Loockx from Hens Maes and Michael Vanthournhout who didnt have a great day. There was much more to discuss about the womens race, with the win of Clara Honsinger being the main topic of the day. Also attention for the strange news around Alvarado and Worst, who have had strange reports about their injuries.  The podcast ends with a look at the U23 race and the other races in Europe.

The cyclocross social podcast is back for the 2021-22 season. In todays episode Noah, Twan and Issam talk about the fifth round of the worldcup, Overijse. First, the attention goes to the Mens race, where Pauwels Sauzen once again pulled out the team tactics. What is our stance on that, and could Toon Aerts have done anything different? Also, what could Hermans have done without that crash? The great ride by Cameron Mason obviously didnt go unnoticed, there is plenty of attention for that aswell!  The womens race then was one for the hisory books. Vas became the second youngest worldcup winner, and the first Hungarian one!! And she did it in style, the hard work put in by Lars Boom looks  to be paying off! Obviously the strong second place by Pieterse gets enough attention aswell, and the same goes fo Burquier who ended 6th here! But there is more, The 9th place for Persico and the 10th place for Fouquenet are also worth mentioning.  The final part of the podcast is dedicated towards the koppenbergcross of tomorrow, which we take a short look ahead at.

Cyclocross Social Podcast with Kaitie Keough: A look back upon her impressive career (Episode 19)
Today, a very special episode of the cyclocross social podcast. In todays episode Noah is joined by Kaitie Keough, who recently announced her retirement from the sport. They talk about her career, and the mental struggles that lead to her retirement.  When she was 7 years old, Kaitie started her cycling career on the cycling track of Kenosha, Wisconsin . In the beginning she just road her normal street bike on the track, but when she was 10 years old, she was finally allowed to get onto a real track bike. She also started racing in other disciplines within cycling, road and cyclocross. Almost every weekend her parents drove her to local cycling races, even if they were 2 hours away. Ever since that, her cyclocross career took off. She won 13 UCI races, with the Jinglecross in Iowa being the most impressive one. She also stood on the overall podium of the world cup, and American national championships. However, it wasnt all puppies and sunshine. She faced some serious mental struggles after her world cup in Iowa, which eventually lead to her retirement. For the full story, listen to the podcast!

Could Van der Haar have won? And what was Hermans doing today?  Ofcourse there was more than just the fight for the win, like good performances by Ronhaar and Van Kessel, whilst Kamp and Vandeputte disapointed.  The womens race was not as interesting as the mens race, because Betsema was simply the best, but there was still enough to talk about.

The mens race in Meulebeke was a different one compared to the weeks before. No Eli Iserbyt win to talk about this time, but a win for his Teammate Michael Vanthourenhout to discuss!  Behind him Aerts fought out a major battle with Sweeck and Hermans for the remaining podium places. We express our opinions on that aswell as on the 5th place of Eli Iserbyt. Behind that there was a lot of exciting talent ending in the top 10 to talk about. The womens race was also very exciting. Belgian champion Sanne Cant started her season with a win, but she needed to fight hard for it. Fresh world champion U19 on the road Zoe Backstedt didnt make the life of Cant easy.
