Cyclocross: Namur

No automatic alt text available.
Tom Pidcock did it again! Quinten Hermans instead has been defeated by Joris Nieuwenhui.
Namour is beautiful as ever. One of my favouritre race, charmng and very hard.
In the Elite Women's race Nash won on Lechner and De Boer. Sanne Cant finished far behind (12th), I'm waiting to understand what happened.
Incredible race in the Elite Men: a very unfortunate Wout van Aert crashed three times, but three times he came back, passed a very strong Tom Meeusen and was in contention with Mathieu van der Poel untill the finish. 3 laps to go van der Poel made a mistake on the steepest climb and van Aert went solo. Van der Poel didn't let him go. Behind Meeusen had cracked and Pauwels could see the podium.
At the last lap van Aert attacks, van der Poel responds and he goes solo untill the finish

Mathieu van der Poel:
"I had the feeling that Wout was the strongest man today but I'm able to ride a good finale in such a cross race. Last year I also won in a fantastic way, this year again. I'm enormously happy. I quickly focused on the final lap and knew that steep climb would be crucial. I rode my sprint over there."

Wout Van Aert:
"The off-camber descent during the recon was dry and I thought to have found a line with good grip in the grass at the bottom of the section. During the race it was more difficult. After the first time I thought that I was in the wrong rut. It was stupid to try it again a second time. It took a while before I had the right feeling in that section.I'm disappointed. Losing in the final lap for the second day in a row is no fun " 

Kevin Pauwels:
"I knew they would accelerate and I would get dropped. It was fun to be that close though. I didn't have a super day like yesterday."

Katerina Nash:
"Today was pretty epic. Sophie and Eva were really strong. It was a good, exciting race. [...] This place is special. I raced for a really long time and I don't have a ton of World Cup victories so everyone of them is super special. I'm really excited.I was looking forward to come back to Namur. It was one of the reasons why I wanted to come back and race in Europe. At a certain point I failed to click into my pedals and in no-time De Boer bridged up. A moment later I crashed and De Boer. I fought back and joined. I don't know, I kind of couldn't get in my pedals. I got a flat in the final lap. I came in for a clean bike. I think that really helped in the last lap. I had a clean bike, clean pedals. Things worked out."
