The nationals

the national championship weekend in Cyclocross is now and today the top champs got their new jerseys.

First in The Netherlands the worlds best cyclists (except in mtb) won again, Marianne Vos:



Sad to not see Daphny van den Brand on of Marianne’s sides.

Second champ that got a new jersey, number 7, is Zdenek Stybar that won in his hometown Stribro:

More from his race here: Zdenek Stybar

So tomorrow, will Lars van den Haar win over Thijs van Amerongen and will Klaas Vantornout (read his a favorite somewhere) win over Nys, Alber and Pauwels that seems to like the top of the podium. Has Pauwels won the national championship in Belgium any time in elite?

And then the americans will fight a bit different. Think Katie Compton will dominate the womens race with Georgia Gould second. But in the mens race. Will Jeremy Powers defend his title or will Tim Johnson or maybe Ryan Trebon take it? Will Jonathan Page get on the podium or how is it going for him?
