Overijse To Test Brand, Van Aert Before Worlds, Sagan Starts Season On Form | Ian & Friends

Jan 22, 2021

Ian and Michael preview the upcoming fifth and final round of the 2020-2021 UCI Cyclocross World Cup in Overijse, one of the most challenging courses on the calendar. 

The duo recounts the troubles and successes that Overijse has brought Lucinda Brand and fondly remember the dog that contested the 2019 edition.

Mathieu Van Der Poel and Wout Van Aert will face off against each other in Overijse for the first time since 2016, providing fans with one final preview of the much anticipated tie-breaking World Championship battle between the rivals.

We also provide a sneak preview of the World Championship course in Ostend, Belgium, a sandy venue featuring a particularly giant bridge.

In closing, we dig into a recent video call with Peter Sagan, who believes Wout van Aert owes him an apology for his Tour de France relegation.

Watch all the way to the end to the end to find out what happened to Ian's eye.
