Cyclocross: Van Aert wins Zilvermeercross in Mol (and Sweeck is 2nd again)

Embedded image permalink
Night race for the Elite Men. Lots of sand. But dry.
Walsleben, Meeusen, Van Aert, Bosmans, Van der Poel, Peeters, Vantornout and L.Sweeck: 5 laps to go it's a consolidated situation.
Then Walsleben attacks, Sweeck follows. It doesn't work. Tom Meeusen shows how you jump - even unconventional - barriers. 
Embedded image permalinkSweeck is leading solo.
Two laps to go it's Van Aert's turn to attack, Sweeck is caught and finally dropped. At the last lap Van Aert crosses solo the finish line. Solo he wins. Second Sweeck comes. 
Behind we don't know - no camera, as usual - but Tom Meeusen arrives solo as 3rd. Van der Poel, very active earlier in the race - sprints for 4th on Peeters.
Bravo Jens Adams: top ten!
According to Velofacts: "Van der Poel fell outside the camera view: a pile-up was the result". That's explain something!

By The Way
Laurens Sweeck has got two brothers, all racing and one of them is his twin :)
