The week in review

18th to 24th January

Welcome back as we start again with the Vendée Globe. Things have changed a great deal in one week. Yannick Bestaven had a clear lead last weekend, but has been caught and overtaken by at least four skippers. The group of nine boats are currently above the areas of Natal and Touros in north-eastern Brazil and just below the equator. The route to follow next is past Cape Verde in the direction of the Azores, before the home stretch to France. Charlie Dalin is the current leader. Mol in the province of Antwerp, is currently entertaining the UCI Masters Cyclo-Cross World Championships that completes tomorrow. In bobsleigh we head to the famous St. Moritz from next Friday to Sunday for the Junior and U23 World Championships. St. Moritz will also be hosting the Skeleton Junior and U20 World Championships on the Saturday. Today is the start of round 1 of the FIM Supercross World Championship with the NRG Stadium in Houston (Texas) hosting. This season there are a few more venues with round 12 finishing in Arlington (Texas) on the 20th March. The 2021 Dakar Rally completed on Friday. Kevin Benavides (bike), Stéphane Peterhansel (car) and Dmitry Sotnikov (truck) are some of the selected results.

It's great to see that organisers are doing the best they can despite the current circumstances. Of course, not everywhere in world has the same restrictions to deal with. Even so, we have a good selection of sports this week. Until next time, have a great sporting week!
