It is already dark. There are many people. Around the 'Exercitieveld' in Woerden, the course meanders over the green of the city centre. Waters are crossed with bridges and pontoons, treacherous descents towards the Singel, where only the best cyclists in the world stay on their bikes. The evening begins with unbridled dedication and ambition from the youth. The juniors and nieuwelingen are together at the start of their races. Young riders of the WTC Woerden will then get the chance to compete with the professionals in the spectacular koppelcross. The UCI Elite Women will compete for the GP BLUEPRINT and the UCI Elite Men for the GP KIREMKO. Traditionally, the amateurs finish the evening with their race in forty minutes.
