Vanthourenhout U23 World Champion Cyclocross
02-02-2015Michael Vanthourenhout (Sunweb-Napoleon Games) became U23 World Champion in Tabor (Czech Republic). Sweeck was 2nd, Godrie 3rd.
After Godrie cancelled an early attack by Sweeck, it was Vanthourenhout who attacked next. Nobody was able to respond, and Vanthourenhout went full power for half a lap. In the background, favourite Sweeck fell a few times too many to close the gap. Vanthourenhout crossed the finish line solo on his Ridley X-Night with 4ZA finishing kit, and had 10 seconds advantage on compatriot Sweeck. Godrie finished on place 3.
In the Junior category, Eli Iserbyt and Max Gulickx finished on place 2 and 3 for Young Telenet-Fidea and Ridley/4ZA.
