Koksijde in Belgium is the location for the seventh International Cycling Union (UCI) Cyclo-cross World Cup of the season tomorrow, with both of the series leaders down to race.

Belgian Eli Iserbyt leads the men's standings and has posted top-three finishes at every race so far this season.

Iserbyt is an impressive 51 points ahead of his closest rival, Dutchman Lars van der Haar, so will still be the leader whatever happens this weekend.

The 24-year-old is one of 14 home riders due to compete, as is Toon Aerts, the bronze medallist at this year's World Championships.

Lucina Brand tops the women's standings and is the defending World Cup champion, as well as the reigning world champion.

Compatriot Denise Betsema is 19 points behind Brand in the standings after back-to-back difficult races, finishing outside the top three in both, but is racing in Koksijde and figures to be one of Brand's main rivals.

Twelve Dutch riders and 12 from Belgium are set to contest the women's elite race.

There was no UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup in Koksijde last season because of the coronavirus pandemic. 

This is the third of six planned legs in Belgium this time around.
