      A chance to show your stripes


      The week after the World Championships isn’t a rest week in the cyclocross world.  Pinning a number back on again in Maldegem on Wednesday there is a chance for redemption and revenge as well as a first glimpse at the new rainbow jersey’s of the sports newly crowned champions.


      Felipe Ort Lloret who put in such an impressive performance in Denmark continued to show his good form with a 10th place.  Michael Borōs finished 7th just behind Eli Iserbyt who continues his impressive results in the Elite events.  In the women’s race Katherine Compton put the World Championships behind her with a 7th place finish ahead of Ellen van Loy in 8th.  Manon Bakker took 10th after sadly missing out on a chance to race in Denmark.


      The weekend started with the conclusion of the DVV Trophy Series.  Thibau Nys took a strong win in the Junior Race with world championships medallist Ryan Cortjens in 8th.  After winning his first u23 World Championships, Tom Pidcock took the win with Ben Turner in 3rd continuing his strong season.  In the Elite events Ellen van Loy ended up in 6th with Felipe Ort Lloret in 12th in the men’s race. 


      The final event of the weekend was the Super Prestige in Hoogstraten where Eli Iserbyt once again put in a strong performance in the elite men’s race taking 4th.  Tom Pidcock finished 5th and Ben Turner impressed with 11th.


      Thibau Nys backed up Saturday’s performance with another win, this time ahead of Ryan Cortjens in 2nd.  In the Elite Women’s race, Eva Lechner performed really well in the mud to finish 6th ahead of Ellen van Loy in 7th
