HASSELT, Belgium—At Saturday’s sandy GP Hasselt, part of the Soudal Classics cyclocross series, UCI C1 racing continued.

While some of the top European stars stayed home, and most Americans pros were in Oklahoma or Rhode Island, four North Americans took the start in Hasselt.

The course featured several features that challenged racers with decisions as to whether to ride or run, including long sand pits, deep muddy straights, and for some (including Aspire’s Ellen Noble), bunnyhoppable barriers.

In the Elite Women’s race, Loes Sels of Crelan Charles took the win ahead of Ellen van Loy (Telenet Fidea Lions) and Ceylin Del Carmen Alvarado(Kleur Op Maat – BNS). Noble finished 12th, Corey Coogan Cisek finished 27th.

In the men’s race, the Telenet Fidea duo of Corne van Kessel and Toon Aerts dropped David van der Poel (Beobank Corendon) to finish one-two. Spencer Petrov finished 29th after apparently breaking a chain.
