This weekend, nine riders of Tormans Cyclo Cross Team will battle for the national titles in the U23 and Elite categories in six different countries. On Saturday, the championships of Belgium (Women), France and Luxembourg are scheduled. The next day, the male representant will battle for the titels in Belgium, the United Kingdom, The Netherlands and in Switzerland, where Kevin Kuhn will defend his title. Barnabás Peák, the Hungarian rider from Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux, will also try to win the national cyclocross title this Sunday.
Last year’s winner Kevin Kuhn will line up as the race favorite on Sunday. The event is organized in Steinmaur, in the north of the country and one hour away from the title defender’s home. It was on the same circuit that Kuhn took his first victory of the season last year. The weather conditions will play a major role on this typical Swiss grass circuit, hilly, and with temperatures oscillating around zero degrees.
