In this tradition of video genius, we’re stoked to present #LIKEAVOS, Bill’s homage to perhaps the greatest contemporary bike racer we know, the incomparable Marianne Vos.
I give you the second episode of #LIKEAVOS.
In episode 1.1 of #LIKEAVOS we visit the sandy confines of Koksijde in West Flanders, Belgium, for round three of the UCI World Cup of Cyclocross. World Champion and series namesake, Marianne Vos, is once again a no show for the race but World Cup leader Katie Compton and a host of strong riders are on hand to run and ride some sand dunes. This episode focuses on riding and running in the sand, the importance of momentum, the rising star of Sanne Cant, and the continued dominance of Compton.
#LIKEAVOS is presented by Skills Drills and Bellyaches: A Cyclocross Primer, available at www.cyclocrossbook.com.
