Cyclocross World Cup-Koksijde

World Champion Erwin Vervecken emerged from his camper fully kitted out and proceeded to check the tire pressure on one of his four bikes. No pressure gauges for Erwin…it was assessed simply by pressing his palm down on the tire and letting the mechanic know whether air needed to be added or released. World Champions do not pump their own tires, or even let air out…truly the essence of PRO.

I’ve returned from Belgium and will have much more to say about the World Cup at Koksijde as well as the 6 Days of Ghent. I’ve got about 120 photos all together from both events plus two short video clips from Koksijde.

  1. It’s true, World Champions do not pump their own tires… when Vervecken came over to race the Southampton races this Fall, I happen to be hanging out at the back of my car and he rolled over to borrow my pump. After either failing at figuring out the pump head or being really clever, I ended up pumping while he pushed on his bars and squeezed the tire between his thumb and index finger.
