  • Niels Albert Reclaims His Crown in Kosijde; Belgium Sweep Top Seven Spots – UPDATED: More Quotes and Photos, Full Results

    Niels Albert (Belgium) celebrates his victory in the Elite men's race at the 2009 UCI Cyclocross World Championships.

    In a historic display of dominance, the Belgian team took the top seven spots today at the 2012 Cyclocross World Championships in Koksijde, led by an incredible solo victory by Niels Albert. Defending champion Zdenek Stybar – nor any other rider– had no response for a Belgian team, racing on Belgian soil, bearing the weight of a country demanding they regain the crown as the world center of cyclocross. From the first lap, the Belgian Juggernaut completely owned the race, with Czechs Zdenek Stybar and Radomir Simunek quickly strangled out of the front group.

    Ridley, a company based in Northern Flanders has deep roots in cyclocross. While the European pros primarily ride the flagship X-Night, the U.S. Ridley-sponsored riders are all on X-Fires, as they make for easier flying without the seatmast of the X-Night. Though in the new catalog, the 2012 Ridley X-Fire is so new it is not yet on their website, but we have an early edition that we’ve been riding and will be reviewed in Issue 13.

    Weeknight racing, long weekend road and mountain bike rides, maybe even a mountain bike race or a road race: these are all the little things we try and do to get our “cyclocross fix,” but it’s not the same. There is no substitute for the gasping breaths, the burning legs, the cross-eyed attempts at clearing the sand pit or the barriers. But we try to capture the feeling with our substitute races and by seeing what is happening in the world of pro cyclocross racers.

    A Telenet-Fidea jersey tucked in behind Tom Boonen’s Quickstep jersey in a sprint. Or a BKCP-Powerplus jersey wedged between Philippe Gilbert and André Greipel’s Omega Pharma-Lotto jerseys while shooting through a tight turn at over 30mph. These rarities can only be found in one professional cycling event – the Tour of Belgium, a five day stage race that weaves its way through Belgium’s countryside. [More...]

    Since 2006, cyclocross racers have been taking the start of this event. Back then, it was only a handful of cross riders such as Sven Nys, Richard Groenendaal, Lars Boom and Sven Vanthourenhout. The cross racer count has since grown to about twenty coming from four teams – BKCP-Powerplus, Sunweb-Revor, Landbouwkrediet, and Telenet-Fidea.
