European Cyclocross Championship: Lars van der Haar and Sanne Cant European Champions

Embedded image permalinkHuijbergen, the Netherlands. A blasting Sanne Cant brings home the title for the Women. Belgium rules. 
Men racing and Laurens Sweeck is leading solo....
Embedded image permalinkNot for long: Van der Haar, Van Aert and Vanthourenhout join, while Venturini is 7" down. But unlucky Vanthourenhout goes straight into a barrier, Sweeck got dropped and the race is already down to two man: van der Haar and van Aert.
Sven Nys isn't there because of a stomach bug.
Embedded image permalink5 laps to go  Van Aert and Van der Haar are leading, Pauwels, M. Vanthourenhout and L. Sweeck are chasing at 15''.
2 laps to go van der Haar is slightly dropped but he doesn't give up. INDEAD he's back on van Aert's wheel. What a duel!
At the last lap these two are still glued. All the rest is fighting for the 3rd place. But in the end just one wins, and that is Lars van der Haar. 
Splendid!
