Following a short delay, our World Champion departed to Switzerland for the first World Cup race of the season in Aigle. Aigle is also home to UCI headquarters.
Zdenek saw very little of the area on the way to the first World Cup cross because of the bad weather. It looks like it's going to be a tough race thanks to the rain. "The course is very muddy and technical," is the word from Switzerland.
