What a fantastic day for Dutch cycling. Probably tomorrow the media tomorrow will report the fact someone doped 30 years ago and will totally forget about the great effort these youngsters put in. It's only cyclocross maybe, but still. Epic stuff.

Looks like Nys is going to switch to a "real" sport now.

A little disappointed in the Americans today but it wasn't too bad.

REALLY stoked that Sven won, though. My ride will be a good one.
I was way more excited over Sven winning then the Americans results...

It was interesting that McQuaid was booed by the crowd when he was introduced to award medals to the elite men's.

I was extremely happy to see Nys win.

Very happy for Van der Haar too. What a great future that kid has. He is great to watch as well. His new American nickname is apparently "Van der Holeshot".

Today during the warm ups the only rider to ride the steep run up was Powers. The crowd started chidding the rest for not riding it. Finally Sven ran to the top and watched Powers ride it. He then rode back down it and rode it up. Crowd roared and had a good laugh. Great day.

Vos now wants to be the first to win the World Championships and World Series.

What a great day of racing. At the end of the day the course had become really hard and technical which ofcourse was great!

Of all the belgians I really hoped Nys would win and he did. His career certainly deserved 1 more WC. Besides that he's a really nice guy that supports his sport to the max. Rides to win in every race while others really peek for the WC.

About Vos riding faster than the man. The course got harder and harder throughout the day so you can't compare lap times, else Matthieu van der Poel would've become world champion among the elites. He rode laps at an average of 36km/h while the pros rode 23km/h

True, the worlds times are incomparable. There was a clear difference between the morning rides and the pro's course.

However, it should be said that during the world cups, Mathieu van der Poel was posting laptimes as fast as the better pro's ...

But this thing of the course getting harder is often true, not always as extreme as today, but after the juniors, espoirs and women ride, the course is always harder than it was at the beginning. Besides that, Van Der Poel has to do less laps. And besides that, Van Der Poel is obviously an extreme talent, and so is Vos.
