DIEGEM, Belgium — The cyclocross powerhouses of Belgium and The Netherlands put on an impressive display of future star power in the U23 Men’s race at the 2015 Superprestige stop in Diegem today.

Seven Belgians and two rising Dutch stars stormed to take nine of the top ten spots, led by Belgians Quinten Hermans and Daan Hoeyberghs, with Dutch star Martjin Budding claiming the final podium spot.

The one exception? Ten-time Cyclocross National Champion Logan Owen, who would finish in seventh. Owen would headline a strong showing by the U23 American men, with four top 15 finishers. Curtis White finished in 11th, Andrew Dillman was 13th and Tobin Ortenblad took 15th.

Six Americans in total finished, with Grant Ellwood finished 26th and Gavin Haley in 31st.

The U23 race at the 2016 USA Cycling Cyclocross National Championships in Asheville, North Carolina is shaping up to be one of the must-watch races this year, with Owen the favorite opting for the Elite Men’s race, with a handful of other Americans, including Owen’s teammate Tobin Ortenblad, ready to claim the title from Owen this year.
