We're set for a lightning fast Cyclocross World Championship race this weekend in Heusden-Zolder if the round of the UCI World Cup on the same course is anything to go by.

British hopes in Saturday's women's elite race lie with Helen Wyman and Nikki Harris. Wyman has experience of a World Championships podium having won bronze at the 2014 race in Hoogerheide, Netherlands.

Harris is reigning British champion and enters the race in great form having finished third in the European Championships and won her first World Cup race in Namur in December.

The elite men's race takes place on Sunday, with reigning champion Mathieu van der Poel the man to beat over the Heusden-Zolder course, having won the World Cup event there in December.
