Belgium cyclocross racing presents numerous obstacles for foreign racers. Sometimes, just getting to the start line is a major challenge. Kermiscross was set to be Andrew Juiliano’s second race of his season-long Belgian campaign, but the Californian didn’t have a ride to the race. That didn’t deter the Grit World Racing p/b Shimano rider. He shouldered his race gear and spare wheels, pedaling to Oudenaarde Station with his manager, Annick. Together traveled by rail and bike to the start line in Ardooie, 40 kilometers away. They had gotten there. Andrew was going to race.
