Update: Read the 2018 Cyclocross Worlds Elite Men’s race report with photos here.

On Sunday, there was a rider well off the front from the field. It just was not the one many people expected to see.

Wout van Aert (Belgium) turned in a dominant performance to win his third straight World Championship. Mathieu van der Poel (The Netherlands) led early, but ran out of gas in the face of Van Aert’s pace at the front. He finished third.

Michael Vanthourenhout finished second for the Belgians.

Stephen Hyde led Team USA in 15th.
