Loes Sels (Pauwels Sauzen – Vastgoedservice) won her penultimate race before the 2019 UCI Cyclocross World Championships in Bogense, Denmark.

On the day before the final World Cup stop in Hoogerheide, Sels took a muddy victory ahead of California-based Czech Katerina Nash (Clif Bar).

Sels is one of just four Belgians heading to the Worlds next weekend.

Nash and Sels weren’t the only ones tuning up for Hoogerheide and Worlds.

Four Americans took the start, with two recently-announced Worlds team members. Rebecca Fahringer (Kona Maxxis Shimano) took sixth, Elle Anderson (Milwaukee – Alpha Motorhomes) finished in seventh, Emily Werner (Amy D. Foundation) in lucky 13th, and Cyclocross Magazine contributor extraordinaire Corey Coogan Cisek (Amy D. Foundation) finishing in 16th.

Today's race in #Zonnebeke was a blast! Good and muddy, just how I like it. Thanks to @mountainbikecoachingbrisbane and @mcgoverncycles I've been focusing on skills and mindset for the past 2-3 weeks, and I engaged for 100% of this race. That led to a stellar start and smooth cornering as well as maintaining fight through the very end. I wasn't without error, and lost a good group early on, but ended up 6th. Tomorrow is the final round of the World Cup circuit in Hoogerheide, then off to Bogense. Anything can happen; no beginnings, no ends, no good no bad. Just racing and smooth lines. 📸 @fotokurtl Be there through it all. @konabikes @maxxisbike @rideshimano . . . @cyclocrosscustom #cyclocross #veldrijden #cycling #cyclingphoto #mudder #rideshimano #maxxistires #superjake #cycleutioncoaching #imissnick
