Cyclocross: SP Gavere

Elite Women
Big one yesterday in Gavere! No big surprises though in the results... 
A good one for Christine Majerus, who was on the posium as 3rd. The 'oldie' Klass Vantornout was once again in the mix with the 'young lions', and I'm glad :)
As far as me I was climbing to Croce del Pratomagno (1591 m). More to come!

Sanne Cant:
"I'm super happy I can win for the fourth time in a row. There's not too many who can say that. It was very hard. On technique you had to find your way to keep riding. It was extremely hard. You try not to think too much. I rode at my own pace and it turned out to be just enough. I've got a good bonus in the series."

Elite Men
Jolien Verschueren:
"I crashed. It happened because I was stuck in my pedal. The race was one lap too short, once again. I lost belief in the podium but the crowd was unbelievable and kept me going. Each lap on the climb I made up a lot of ground, except on the final lap. I always managed to ride the whole climb but not in the final lap. I hoped to be on the top spot. I wanted to get the win for the fans. It's great to be cheered on this way. My start? I have to keep working on it. I react late, and when I react well then I get boxed in. Maybe I shouldn't focus on it." 

U23 Men
Christine Majerus:
"I'm very satisfied. I always liked this race and improved every year. It was a close race. I tried to follow Sanne and Jolien until the end but eventually had to settle for third."

Mathieu Van der Poel:
"I heard that Wout was always winning on the tough courses, which was true. I just had to wait for a super day to show that I can do it too. That would be great but it'll be hard in Francorchamps. I'm focusing on the classification for now. I just tried to get in front with a few guys. I certainly expected Wout to bridge up but then he had a chain problem. A chain problems again... It's driving me crazy. We thought we solved it but now it's happened two weeks in a row. It doesn't happen during training rides. We'll have to try to find a solution to get it solved again. It was frustrating. First I got dropped once again by the first mere acceleration from Mathieu. Then the chain was bothering me again. It made it impossible for me to give it all out there. Sometimes it's just not possible to fight back. Without the chain problems I would have kept the pressure on Mathieu for much longer but I never got into my rhythm. Nevertheless Mathieu certainly deserved the victory. He was the best out there. Van der Poel keeps on increasing his lead and if the races continue to be a battle between the two of us it'll be very hard to close down the gap. Only an off-day from him can turn it around but that’s not what I want to hope for."

U19 Men
Toon Aerts:
"First I managed to sneak along with Pauwels when Tom was still up front. Then I found out that some sections suited me better and managed to ride away. It's great to be on the podium with these two guys. It's like a half victory. I'm still young and feel there's still room for improvement. I look forward to the upcoming weeks, months and years."
