How hard can a cyclo-cross course be for a non-cyclist? Well, the difficulty of racing on sand is shown in the video below where a couple of professional footballers were asked to try out the course of a Cyclo-Cross World Cup leg.
Ruud Vormer and Timmy Simons play for Club Brugge players and they decided to step up to the mark and give it a go. They were joined by former cyclo-cross World Champion Paul Herygers, who won the World Championships in 1994, in Koksijde.
Slecht weer? Geen probleem voor Timmy Simons en Ruud Vormer! Ze gingen met ex-veldrijder Paul Herygers de fiets op begin deze week 🚲 pic.twitter.com/9w3f5vamU4
