COURSE – HET MEER CX
Feeling out of touch with your inner Euro? Well, we have the course for you. In the tradition of the most classic sand filled Belgian Cyclocross courses like Koksijde, Zonhoven, Krawatencross, and Oostmalle we have a flat fast Euro course with 200 meters of beach front sand to get you all Euro’d up. Don’t worry there’s still a lots of fast flat grass sections, paved trails, gravel roads, open field single track, tricky off camber sections that will most likely become run-ups for most.
