Whether you’re on the ground in Hoogerheide or watching our live video feed of the U23 Men’s race at the 2014 Cyclocross World Championships, bib numbers can help you identify the racers as they fly across your screen (before their number gets covered in mud).
Here’s the latest start list for the U23 Men in Hoogerheide with bib numbers. This is not the order of call-ups.
Five of the top eight from last year are returning, including the defending champ in Teunissen. Last year’s bronze medalist Wout van Aert is looking for revenge (see our interview with him here). Yet first-year U23 Mathieu van der Poel, last year’s Junior World Champion in cyclocross and on the road, has been on a tear, winning U23 races including Diegem.
The U.S. sends five racers, four hailing from the Cal Giant Cycling team, plus Curtis White of Cannondale p/b Cyclocross World.
