UCI CYCLO-CROSS WORLDS - JR MEN & U23 WOMEN
The Heusden-Zolder circuit is a well-used race car track, even holding F-1 races in the past. They currently race cars about 15 times per year, but the grounds is also home to the 2015 UCI BMX World Championship track (located just off the far left of this map. I also noticed a RC race track, dirt jumps for bicycles, a dirt rally-cross course and more. The cyclocross course is stretched out from side-to-side, as you can see on the map, which makes it difficult for photographers and spectators to see the whole course.

Yes, it was very wet for the Jr Men and U23 Women races. Many photographer's pro camera bodies were getting destroyed by the wetness, but at about this time the UCI was dealing with the first found case of 'mechanical doping' in Femke's bike.
Below are some links to news and reactions to these findings. The disciplinary committee has yet to release their findings When they do, I will update the links here.
