Sunday’s racing at the 2018 World Championships in Valkenburg-Limburg kicks off with the U23 Men’s race at 5 a.m. Eastern. The race is a chance to see the future stars of the sport put it all out on the course for the rainbow stripes.

Last year, Joris Nieuwenhuis (The Netherlands) dominated the race in Bieles, but this year, he should be in for a fight.

Last year’s Junior champion Tom Pidcock (Great Britain) has graduated to the U23s and won the World Cup overall title. Eli Iserbyt (Belgium) won Sunday’s race at Hoogerheide and is looking to bounce back after a disappointing 17th-place finish at last year’s Worlds.
