Read It And Weep
There will be no World Cup Waterloo in 2020. This is a huge loss for Trek and for Wisconsin ... and it is perhaps a permanent loss for cyclocross in North America. COVID-19 forced the hand of the organizers this season, but by next season it would have been obvious that in an expanded World Cup there was no real incentive for the Europeans to come here. They have so many races in Europe that they can pursue all of their series ambitions there without the hassles, dangers, and (most of all) expenses of a trip to North America. Trek is hopeful for next season, but I'm unconvinced.
