We are used to being treated to regular TV coverage of the big Euro ‘cross races, something that has only arrived in the past couple of years but is now easy to find (for example here on the Cyclocrossable YouTube channel).
However, professional coverage has a tendency to sanitise the action a little with high and wide camera angles and long shots in order to cover the full breadth of racing and action. As a contrast, we like this homemade film of the recent GP Brabant featuring many of the top Euro riders as it gives a real feel for the speed, adrenaline and technicalities of racing. A bit like watching a good British ‘cross race. Only faster.
Enjoy this different perspective.
