World Cup winner Tijmen Eising (Revor Cycling Team) has won the final Junior World Cup race of the season in Roubaix. Belgian Champion Wietse Bosmans finished as second and American Zach McDonald as third. Eising was already winner of the World Cup after the race in Zolder on Boxing day (December 26, 2008).

Belgian Sean de Bie had the best start but dropped back to finish finally as seventh. Tijmen Eising and Wietse Bosmans who were able to follow De Bie took over but also Bosmans wasn’t able to follow the pace of the young Dutchman.

In the remaining laps Eising didn’t made any mistakes and took his eleventh win of the season. In two weeks Eising will be the big favorite for the World title in Hoogerheide.

Behind Eising and Bosmans it was Zach McDonald who won the sprint for third from Luc Braidot and Dutch Champion Lars van der Haar.
