Video: Junior Men’s Race, 2013 Heusden-Zolder World Cup

Pin It

The Junior men’s race at the 2013 Heusden-Zolder Cyclocross World Cup had no less than eight Americans take the start at the Formula 1 race track, and like Formula 1 racers, they exploded off the line in the race for the holeshot before the first hairpin turn.

The first Junior to hit that turn? An American.

Cyclocross Magazine makes out the American holeshot winner to be Cooper Willsey, ranked eighth in UCI rankings. Willsey enjoyed a great starting position and used that to his advantage to catapult himself into the lead, albeit briefly.

Czech Republic’s Adam Toupalik took an impressive win over World Cup leader Yannick Peeters. See the full 2013 Zolder U23 and Junior Men results here.

A spectator grabbed eight minutes of good footage of the front of the Junior race, and we have those highlights below. Watch the impressive start and the contenders in the Junior men’s race from a spectator’s perspective in this video.
