UCI Cyclocross World Cup - Milan - LIVE

Update:  Race is playing on cycling.tv (UCI subscription) and on Sporza here (heavy buffering).

UCI Cyclocross World Cup - Milan -  LIVE today on cycling.tv.

Today's race in Milan is the 9th and last leg of the UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup.  Mathematically, Belgian national champion Sven Nys has the World Cup wrapped up given his 88-point lead over Bart Wellens and the fact that a victory today will bring the winner 80 points.  So most everyone is likely already looking ahead to next Sunday's (February 1) Cyclo-cross World Championships in Hoogerheide, The Netherlands.

As an indication of the place Sven Nys now holds in the Belgium sports world, consider this:  He recently was selected Belgian sportsman of the year, winning head of, among others, 2008 Tour of Flanders winner and Belgian national road race champion Stijn Devolder.  With this season's Cyclo-cross World Cup already wrapped up, he will be thinking ahead to next week's World Championships for sure.
