The Netherlands up after the first day of the Cyclocross World Championship in Dübendorf. Among the junior women we saw Shirin van Anrooij soloing to the world title, while Ryan Kamp was the best among the promising men. And with the elite women we even got a completely Dutch podium. But the top favorite among the junior men is really a Belgian.
His name? Thibau Nys, the son of the Belgian cyclocross legend Sven Nys. Nys junior became European and Belgian champion last winter and won the World Cup with great dominance, after winning six of the seven heats. He therefore starts as the big top favorite.
The biggest opposition comes from Swiss. Dario Lillo, winner of the last world cup in Hoogerheide, wants to write history for its own people. After all, it was since 1998 that Michael Baumgartner once again became a Swiss world champion in the field. The home favorite has fully worked towards this World Cup.
Other contenders, whether or not for a podium place, are Lennert Belmans, Emiel Verstrynge (third in the WB of Nommay), Tibor del Grosso and Rémi Lelandais. Sporza broadcasts all World Cup matches in Dübendorf live. The broadcast starts at 10.45 on Canvas. Discuss this here WielerFits the course of the cross.
