Koppenbergcross with Verschueren and van Aert

Wout van Aert came like a rocket last season winning a lot. This year it’s a new Belgian riding coming fast. The small Jolien Verschueren. Today she won the big Koppenbergcross:

And Wout van Aert won the men’s race in a great way:

GP Mario de Clercq, CX Ronse

First CX race this season for the world champ today, Omega Pharma – Quick-Step stylish kit:

And as he is the world champion Stybar can have his bike like he wants. Specialized doesn’t have any Crux CX bikes with cantilevers for 2015 but Stybar got some 😉

So world champ, light bike, Sram CX1, aerohelmet = win?

He caught Mathieu van der Poel on the first lap and lapped as #1 but then it became a bigger group. Then Sven Nys showed himself with an attack and then the race was over. Sven Nys was just better today and Stybar was dropping a bit.

Start the new year in a good way

15.00 CET today it’s Cyclocross! Sven Nys own race in Baal, but without Sven Nys this year as he is sick 😦 Will Zdenek Stybar take his first win of the season at his second last race? Will we the see the stairs that is there just for this race and will Niels Albert crack? Hard to say now but all we know is that it will be a race and I hope it will be exciting. And racers in new teams, clothes as it’s the first race of the year. Watch it here:
