Much like the 6 Days and the criteriums, there has always been a mystery in cyclocross about the payment to the riders to put on a show. Like another subject, there has been an 'omerta' on that kind of thing. Belgian newspaper, Het Nieuwsblad, has opened the account books and spilt the beans.

No '6 Days' action this year, but there is still some cyclo-cross. Ed Hood has gone back to Britain in the 60s and 70s to talk to multi-champion John Atkins. Life was different in those days and the cyclo-cross racing was hard, there was no carbon and electric gears back then!
