Lille Krawatencross Women & Men Highlights
No rainbow curse for Ceylin del Carmen Alvarado (Alpecin-Fenix). After making a mistake early and falling hard the door was opened for another duel with Annemarie Worst (777) who would from this point ride neck & neck with the World Champ. Alvarado fresh off of out sprinting Worst at Worlds would out kick her again. It seems like the two have many more battles ahead of them. With World Champ Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) sitting this one out it opened the door for someone else to finally win a race. I did not think it would be Wout van Aert (Team Jumbo-Visma) but I’m super pleased that it was. His first win since his scary crash at last year’s Tour de France. And it was powerful display with 2nd placed rider 21 seconds back. Getting excited for the spring road season.
Volta a la Comunitat Valencia Stage 4
This finish was super steep and the final kilometers are worth watching. The youth movement continues with 21 year old Tadej Pogacar (UAE) launching a long ranger on the harder bits of the 5km climb. He set sail with about 3 to go and no one had an answer. Eventually Dan Martin (Israel Start-Up Nation) would claw back some real-estate and then Wout Poels (Bahrain McLaren) found some momentum closing the gap down to 6 seconds at the line. But Pogacar had done enough to secure the stage and overall victory. This kid has huge potential.
