Earlier today we showed you a photo retrospective of the American Junior Men on course at yesterday’s Namur World Cup.
For their part, the American U23 Men too, including Curtis White who was 27th at Namur and who shared a rider diary with us, had a challenging race at Namur yesterday. Logan Owen, who was in the top 10 at Koksijde, was the top placed American rider in the Namur field in 17th. Tobin Ortenblad, who we spoke with last month, was a handful of seconds back in 22nd with Gavin Haley in 41st and Grant Ellwood finished 47th.
As we recently heard from Tobin Ortenblad, “Namur is exactly what cross should be, a hard technical course with fierce competition.” And that’s what was on display for the U23 men yesterday.
Please note that we have more photos from the elite races to share. In the meantime, enjoy these photos Bart Hazen of the American racers at Namur and be sure to check out the Junior Men’s photo gallery from Namur as well.
