The 2016 Hansgrohe Superprestige cyclocross series in Europe has delivered some of the best men’s races of the year, with plenty of drama and back-and-forth action between the sport’s two biggest stars in Mathieu van der Poel and Wout van Aert. The third stop in Ruddervoorde was no exception, and even the pesky dropped chain made its return to add some excitement and frustration for Van Aert and fans alike.
We’ve got some photographic highlights from the race, starting with Bart Hazen’s gallery of the Elite Men’s race. Some of our favorites are below, with more in the slideshow at the bottom.
