Welcome to the GCN Racing News Show - this week, the best event that you’ve never heard of? We take a look at the amazing Pittsburgh Dirty Dozen, we’ve also got the latest cyclocross world cup from Koksijde, and a scintillating attack from our very own Si Richardson in the GCN Zwift Tuesday night race.

Pittsburgh Dirty Dozen - The organisers found the 13 steepest and toughest climbs in the area, and squeezed them into a 50-mile ride. The race is neutralised between the climbs, and then you just go hell for leather up each one - it’s like the ultimate KOM competition, with points scored at the top of each one. This year was the 36th running of the event, organised by local legend Danny Chew, and it was as brutal as ever. Made even more brutal, in fact, by the atrocious weather conditions. 37% gradients in the dry? Horrible. 37% gradient in the cold and wet - next level torture.

Sunday saw the 5th round of the World Cup take place on the sand dunes of Koksijde in Belgium. In the women’s race, a strong group forged clear in the first third of the race, including World Champion Sanne Cant, Brammeier, Worst, Del Carmen Alvarado and Compton. However, it was Denise Betsema of Marlux Bingoal that caused the big surprise on the day. Having started well down the grid, the 25 year old had a lot of work to do just to get herself on terms, but having done that, she showed everybody a clean pair of sandy wheels to take her 2nd win of the weekend, and her first ever World Cup win - which more than qualifies her to be this week’s GCN Rider Of The Week. Brammeier took her best result of the season taking 2nd, just ahead of European Champion Worst.

In the men’s race, it was possibly the most dominant performance yet by European Champion Mathieu Van Der Poel, who already had a 16 second lead by the end of just one lap of racing, and the only people who ever saw him again were the spectators. Behind, World Champion Van Aert recovered from a poor start to eventually finish 2nd, 25 seconds behind Van Der Poel, with World Cup leader Toon Aerts rounding out the podium And retaining his series lead.
