3-4 The cy­clocross world cham­pi­onships slide through the mud of Valken­burg, the Nether­lands. Cana­dian CX champ Michael van den Ham (p.15) plans to make the event part of a month long Euro­pean cam­paign.

14-18 The Volta ao Al­garve in Por­tu­gal is Rob Brit­ton’s (p.52) kind of race: dry, warm and hilly.

15 “I think [the bi­cy­cle] has done more to eman­ci­pate women than any one thing in the world. I re­joice ev­ery time I see a woman ride by on a bike. It gives her a feel­ing of sel­f­re­liance and in­de­pen­dence the mo­ment she takes her seat; and away she goes, the pic­ture of un­tram­melled wom­an­hood .”— women’ s rights ac­tivist Su­san B.anthony, born on this day in 1820.

24 Leah Kirch­mann (Team Sun­web) has com­peted in Om­loop Het Nieuws­blad the past two sea­sons, fin­ish­ing fourth in 2016. She plans on hav­ing a strong spring in 2018. Ali­son Jack­son (Team Tibco) and Karol-ann Canuel (Boels-dol­mans) will likely be there, too.

28-March 4 The track cy­cling world cham­pi­onships hit the boards of the velo­drome in Apel­doorn, the Nether­lands.
