Cyclo-cross Worlds – Women
Lucinda Brand (NED) capped off a stunning season with the rainbow bands. It was a thrilling race coming down to the final lap as Annemarie Worst (NED) went shoulder to shoulder with Brand. Brand took the inside line of the corner and won the battle of shoulders. Worst went down and Brand pressed on securing the win. Notable: American Clara Honsinger finished 4th. It was American legend Katherine Compton’s last race in Europe.
Cyclo-cross Worlds – Men
Again it is amazing to see how quickly Wout van Aert (BEL) and Mathieu van der Poel (NED) separated from the rest of the field. Van Aert put the pressure on early causing Van der Poel to make some mistakes. Van Aert had about 15-20 seconds on his rival after he crashed and he was looking good when he punctured on the 3rd lap in the front wheel. Van der Poel pounced on the opportunity. After a bike change Van Aert was now on the chase and almost caught Van der Poel when to small but costly mistakes in the sand caused the gap to go out to 13 seconds and eventually out to 29 seconds. Van der Poel would ride flawlessly to the finish.
