Before the Nys’ and van den Brands of the ‘cross world took the stage in Gieten, the Juniors and U23 riders had their moment to shine.  The younger riders did not disappoint with exciting races in the muddy conditions.   US riders were represented well in the races with Chris Wallace, Zach McDonald and Brandon Mart racing at Gieten.

Juniors – Brief Report

Mike Teunissen took the holeshot and kept the early lead through most of the race. David van der Poel didn’t have a great start but fought back and joined Teunissen with less than two laps to go. In the sprint for the win Van der Poel took the win over Teunissen. Emiel Dolfsma finished third. Teunissen now leads the Superprestige rankings after  5 races with 61 points. Van der Poel is second with 58 points and Michiel van der Heijden is third at 57 points.  US racer Chris Wallace finished on the lead lap in 36th.

U23 – Brief Report

BKCP’s Lubomir Petrus took the holeshot followed by Tom Meeusen, Jim Aernouts, Kenneth van Compernolle and Jan Denuwelaere.   Tom Meeusen took over during the second lap, followed by Aernouts and Van Compernolle. Van Compernolle tried to shake his companions and joined the company of Meeusen, Aernouts and Kacper Szcepaniak. From then on, Meeusen made it a hard race and only the surprising Polish rider Kacper Szcepaniak was able to follow.

Kenneth van Compernolle, the winner of this race in 2008, was part of the initial break but was eventually dropped. In the final two laps of the race Szcepaniak fell off the pace and Meeusen, the Belgian of the Telenet-Fidea squad, could add another race to his impressive U23 palmares. US Champion Zach McDonald raced well, finishing 23rd.
