Update: See our 2018 Cyclocross World Championships U23 Men’s race report and photo gallery here.

In Valkenburg-Limburg, Eli Iserbyt (BEL) reclaimed the U23 Men’s World Championship title he won in 2016 in Zolder with a fast start and consistent ride.

Iserbyt held off a shoe mechanical-suffering Joris Nieuwenhuis (NED), while pre-race favorite and recent U23 World Cup Winner Thomas Pidcock (GBR) never factored.

France’s Yan Gras took the bronze.

American Gage Hecht finished ninth.
