After his strong showing at last weekend’s Roubaix World Cup, Zdenek Stybar has to be the odds on favorite for victory today. He’s got all of the form, and he’ll have an eye cast towards next weekend’s World Championships, so a good performance will reinforce his confidence

Sven Nys (Landbouwkrediet – Colnago) will be looking to knock Stybar down a few rungs and reexert his hold on World Championships favorite status. Nys had an average race by his standards last weekend, but will look to improve ahead of next weekend

Klaas Vantornout (Sunweb – Revor) had a fine race last weekend in Roubaix, springing out of an elite bunch of riders to take second. If he wants to convince the Belgian brass that they should rely on him, he’s going to have to win today

Dutchmen Gerben de Knegt (Rabobank) and Thijs Al (AA Drink) will both have to turn some heads here today in order for those in the cyclocross world to take the Netherland’s chances next weekend seriously. With the departure of Lars Boom, there’s been a void that de Knegt has been trying his best to fill, and today he’ll be out to prove that he can

Jake – CX Magazine: 

Stybar will be helped along today by his Telenet – Fidea teammates. Kevin Pauwels already has a win under his belt in the World Cup series, and he’ll look to take home a second. Bart Wellens is still on the way back from a virus that knocked him out of much of the first half of the season, but a fifth place in Roubaix and his powerful riding that set up Stybar’s winning attack could show that he’s back where he wants to be

Neils Albert (BKCP – Powerplus) is a bit of a question mark heading into the final weekend of the World Cup after suffering a broken rib at the Belgian National Championships after being controversially taken off his bike by what he claims to have been a drunk Sven Nys supporter. This will be his last chance to prove that he’s well enough to make a World Championships defense

There’s not a lot of loose mud out there it looks like, as earlier races have carved a distinct track in the grass. Riders do seem to be laboring a bit though, so it looks like it’s sticky out there

Vervecken’s ability to hang on to the front is being tested, and he’s falling off the pace a bit. That’s to be expected for a man in his final season as a professional

I have to admit that that result was a bit unexpected! Once Stybar closed the initial gap up to Albert, I thought that things would be his for sure! Albert’s final attack was impressive, and Stybar had nothing left to close down

I’m thinking that it’s a good day for Daphny Van den Brand next weekend. If she can keep things together, she’s got the best mix of skills to win in Tabor. Katerina Nash would be a good choice too. If Katie Compton can get these leg issues worked out, she should be the number one favorite, but I’m a bit nervous about how she’ll perform after missing two World Cups

I do hope that Katie Compton is able to bounce back, but I fear for her sharpness and snap in Tabor. Missing a week to rest and recover is one thing, but missing two weeks, being completely off the bike and missing your final chance to get race intensity in, that’s a whole different matter. I’m worried.

It’s going to be all-out for the win next weekend. Albert said teammwork won’t be a factor. And actually, last year after the Worlds…he even admitted to us that he was always going to race for the win…while the others worked for him, he didn’t have plans to do the same if he found a teammate off the front.

Jake – CX Magazine: 

Jonathan Page has been the face of American cyclocross for the better part of the last decade, and is arguably the most decorated cyclocross rider of his generation. Page ascended to the top of the heap in 2007 when he rode his way to a second place at the UCI Cyclocross World Championships in Hooglede-Gits, Belgium. For Page and for the United States, this was uncharted territory against some of the world’s best cyclocross talent. Page has won six US National Titles, with a three year unbeaten run of elite titles starting in 2002. Page also has won two Espoirs titles and one junior title. Page also has a litany of fantastic results on the ‘cross circuit, with numerous victories both domestically and abroad.
