Ryan Kamp from Raamsdonksveer has won the world title among the promises. The 20-year-old cyclist drove solo in Dübendorf in Switzerland to the final victory of the race for drivers under the age of 23.
Kamp placed a decisive demarrage two laps before the finish. The Swiss Kevin Kuhn finished second at 36 seconds, just before the Dutchman Mees Hendrikx, who took bronze.
Kamp signed for the second Dutch success at the World Cup. Shirin van Anrooij became world champion with the juniors earlier on Saturday. The 17-year-old rider from Goes drove away from her competitors in the first round.The Dutch Puck Pieterse came in second at 53 seconds. The American Madigan Munro finished third and had to admit for almost a minute and a half. Van Anrooij started as a big favorite. She already finished four times in the top ten this season in a race for the elite world cup.
For a long time in Kamp’s agenda there was a circle around 1 February. The World Cup has been living at Kamp for a long time.
“Already last year,” he recently said. “When the season was over, we made a schedule to work towards the World Cup. Now it’s really coming. I am really looking forward to it. ”That effort has therefore paid off.
