Toon Aerts (Telenet Fidea Lions) celebrated the occasion of racing at the Trek factory by winning his first career World Cup after dispatching Wout van Aert (Unattached) two-thirds of the way into the race.

Ellen Noble (Trek Factory Racing CX) also made her first race at Trek while wearing the Trek colors a good one. Noble took seven-time world champion Marianne Vos (WaowDeals Pro Cycling) down to the wire in an instant classic. Even though Vos escaped on Trek Factory Hill to win, it was still a standout ride from one of the sport’s young stars.
Robert Clark (aka Robotfresh), who helped with our coverage all weekend, provided a gallery of some of his favorite shots from Sunday’s two World Cups.
