1. In episode 2.7, #SVENNESS visits the Belgian province of Limburg for the Superprestige Zonhoven. Known for its sand and perilous descents, Zonhoven was a study in balance and power. We highlight downhill action, the runups and a close race between Klaas Vantornout, Lars van der Haar, Niels Albert and Sven Nys.

  2. In #SVENNESS 2.6 we visit the Koppenbergcross, which is part of the Bpost Bank Trofee series and takes place in Oudenaarde, Belgium. This cyclocross race took on the character of a road race, and we highlight Fidea Telenet's team tactics that help put their riders in contention for the win. Also highlighted is a spectacular ride by Ian Field.

    One thing not mentioned in the video that is important to point out: There are no forced dismounts on this course and many riders stay on their bikes the whole ride. That doesn't mean it was easy, though, as these riders dealt with a brutal climb and a windy day.

  3. In #SVENNESS 2.5 we look at the Superprestige Ruddervoorde. The race features a lot of turns, a nice rhythm section, some sand, and a whole lot of looking around. A windy day on a course that didn't have many super technical features made for a strategic race. We focus on running vs. riding, carrying the bike and some start strategy.

  4. In #SVENNESS 2.4 we recap the first UCI World Cup race of the season, which took place at Valkenburg. The ep focuses on race management in the early moments, a tricky descent, disc brakes, power sections and bad luck. But more than anything #SVENNESS 2.4 focuses on the arrival of Lars van der Haar. We know he's the fastest off the blocks and can finish among the best in the world, but can he win?

  5. In #SVENNESS 2.2 we take a look at the relatively unspectacular course at the GP Albert Van Damme Laarne. But you don't need an amazing course to have amazing racing. Maybe it was the emotion of Amy Dombroski's passing and the moment of silence before the race that motivated the Fidea Telenet crew, but they were not going to be denied on this day.

    Speaking of Amy D., please support her memorial fund by buying a shirt from our friends at Handlebar Mustache. hbstache.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=120
