Although Sven Nys is about to become the best cyclo-cross rider ever, he will never beat Roland Liboton being the world’s most successful cyclo-cross ‘championship rider’ of all times. This blog however is not about who is the greatest, it is about the fact that Liboton was without a doubt wearing the nicest Belgian champion jersey I have ever seen… for 10 years in a row…
I saw -and with me a few million other cycling fanatics- a tremendous race today. The light blue jerseys of the Belgian team were clearly visible throughout the world championship race in Valkenburg. The whole peloton had been watching the ‘smurfs’ all day. Everybody expected Gilbert to strike on the final climb of the Cauberg, nevertheless we were all dazzled by the explosive power he displayed.
