We’re craving race results here at Cyclocross Magazine headquarters, and luckily, the Tour of Belgium has arrived just in the nick of time. Since it is the Tour of Belgium, it only makes sense that a quick look down the start list reveals nearly all of the Euro cyclocross greats from the past season. In the first stage, Belgian racer Tom Meeusen (Telenet-Fidea) was the first cyclocrosser to cross the finish line in 10th place, followed immediately by fellow countryman Sven Vanthourenhout. In stage two, Vanthourenhout took 10th spot, and Kevin Pauwels, who had a breakout season in Europe this past year, took 12th spot.  With three stages left in the Tour, which cyclocrosser will take the win? Stay tuned!

On the US side of things, Jake Keough (United Healthcare) took 19th in the first stage. While Keough hasn’t been racing cyclocross much in recent years, he had a stellar record during his time in the dirt, and his younger brother Luke took the overall win in the Shimano Pro Series last season.
