Large fields and crowds were present today at the penultimate World Cup today in Roubaix, and in the end, two Americans stood on the podium.

Erwin Vervecken (Revor) took home a big win for his new team by holding off a huge effort by Fidea’s Zdenek Stybar. Sven Nys rounded out the podium, finishing shortly after Vervecken. The major drama of the day came when Lars Boom (Rabobank) seemed to have a sure victory as he rode away from the rest of the field, only to see his lead turn into a deficit when overwhelming mud and slop prevented him from being able to clip into his pedal for almost half a lap.

Katie Compton (Spike Shooter) took a convincing win in the women’s race, reveling in her favorite, heavy, muddy conditions and outclassing Hanka Kupfernagel and Daphny van den Brand. Rachel Lloyd (Giant Strawberry – Specialized) took a strong seventh. Sue Butler and Christine Vardaros finished in 26th and 36th. Canadian Wendy Simms finished in 15th.

In the junior race, U.S. champ Zach McDonald (Classic Cycles) took a huge podium behind World Cup Leader Tijmen Eising and Belgian champ Wietse Bosmans. American Luke Keough (CL-Noonan) had a great start and was near the front before dropping back to 14th place. Eric Emsky had a slow start and never recovered, finishing in 47th.

In the U23 race, Nick Weighall of Rad Racing had a rough going and was pulled with a lap to go.
