Cross Predictions – Week 11 Wrap-Up

It was a mixed bag this weekend as far as the predictions went. Sven Nys dominated in Belgium (as predicted) and Martin Bina picked up another Toi Toi Cup (as predicted). The rest of the European podiums were hit or miss this. One quick note, I do know that Japan is not a part of Europe, but I put it in the European races. I will be doing the same thing this week.

Stateside, I managed to predict the riders who were active in Iowa. Unfortunately, I was unable to nail down who would do what. Interestingly enough, I only missed two spots on the podium, including Trebon’s DNF on Sunday. As far as the Canadian races went, Geoff Kabush won both races (as predicted).
