Erpe Mere (Kermess) May 28

15 Xandro Meurisse
47 Robin Poelvoorde
53 Jelle Braeckman (rather an mtb’er)


GP Plumelec – May 28

37 Florian Le Corre
78 Arnold Jeannesson

Paris-Roubaix U23 – May 29

26 Tim Merlier
28 Mike Theunissen
37 Vinnie Braet
62 Stef Boden

Such a shame that Sinkeldam stopped the cross !

Theunissen had stomach cramps on Mons en Pévèle and was in a group far behind at that moment, which he had to let go. Afterwards, he went beter again and reached a group that would sprint for place 25, just like Merlier, thus. Hats off to these riders, bravo !

Mike Theunissen (#86) on a section that I couldn't identify:

20 Zdenek Stybar
88 Jan Denuwelaere
91 Gianni Denolf
95 Floris De Tier
115 Kevin Pauwels

Was added to Pauwels' calendar last week along with a derny race on June 6 but he definitely has to find a stage race in substitution for the Tour of Belgium ban. Since we're in June, he can race UCI events now. But why could Sven VTH race the Tour of Belgium, then ?????

The Gullegem Koerse was the 10th win by Gilbert, this season. It started with a minute silence in honour of Weylandt, who was the winner of the last two editions.

Nys says he's prepared to sacrifice his CX season for a chance at an olympic MTB medal.
After London 2012, he has 1 goal left: become world champion cyclocross in the US (2013)

Impressive!
Life's too important to be taken seriously
Doping sucks

Wouter, John and Xavi, you all will be missed.

Yup Wietse really impresses me !

Short update now because many crossers are currently active on several stage races (Styby is now better ranked than Andy Schleck in Switzerland :D). That would be updated next week.

Yup Antonio. The Tour of Serbia seems is a great race for Fidea, they've been there for four years now. Last year Kevin Pauwels won a stage and I have the feeling that the finish was about the same, uphill. I also have interviews and pics.

Italian Nats RR (U23) – June 25

[font="Comic Sans MS"]Winner[/font] Matteo Trentin

Image

I just realized/remember that Trentin was a crosser, though since he signed a contract with Quick Step, I'm not sure he'll stay in the prairies for long: http://www.les-sports.info/cyclo-cross-trentin-matteo-resultats-identite-s17-c2-b4-o2-w57235.html

He was 5th in the U23 Ronde van Vlaanderen, [font="Comic Sans MS"]winner[/font] of the GP della Liberazione, [font="Comic Sans MS"]winner [/font]of the De Gasperi Trophy, 2nd in the GP Industria del Marmo and 13th in the Baby Giro (4th in the 3rd Stage), among other results. Shame I missed the beginning of his season !

If anyone has the full results of the U23 Italian Nats, I'll be grateful. Would like to know what Silvestri did.


Czechoslovakian Nats RR – June 26

4 Zdenek Stybar (3rd Czech)
10 Karel Hnik (8th Czech and 2nd U23 Czech; 3rd U23 overall?)
26 Martin Zlamalik (20th Czech)
33 Ondrej Bambula (25th Czech)
38 David Kasek (30th Czech)
Radomir Simunek, Lubomir Petrus, Jiri Polnicky, Petr Dlask and Zdenek Mlynar (wow he’s still there!) DNF

Czech and Slovakian feds organized a combined race for their championship. I can't argue that Styby finished 3rd since ex-crosser Sagan finished ahead of him, by the sweat of his brow, whether he be Slovakian or not.

Styby with Sagan and ? Bencik?

[font="Comic Sans MS"]Winner[/font] Matteo Trentin

I just realized/remember that Trentin was a crosser, though since he signed a contract with Quick Step, I'm not sure he'll stay in the prairies for long: http://www.les-sports.info/cyclo-cross-trentin-matteo-resultats-identite-s17-c2-b4-o2-w57235.html

He was 5th in the U23 Ronde van Vlaanderen, [font="Comic Sans MS"]winner[/font] of the GP della Liberazione, [font="Comic Sans MS"]winner [/font]of the De Gasperi Trophy, 2nd in the GP Industria del Marmo and 13th in the Baby Giro (4th in the 3rd Stage), among other results. Shame I missed the beginning of his season !

If anyone has the full results of the U23 Italian Nats, I'll be grateful. Would like to know what Silvestri did.


Czechoslovakian Nats RR – June 26


4 Zdenek Stybar (3rd Czech)
10 Karel Hnik (8th Czech and 2nd U23 Czech; 3rd U23 overall?)
26 Martin Zlamalik (20th Czech)
33 Ondrej Bambula (25th Czech)
38 David Kasek (30th Czech)
Radomir Simunek, Lubomir Petrus, Jiri Polnicky, Petr Dlask and Zdenek Mlynar (wow he’s still there!) DNF

Czech and Slovakian feds organized a combined race for their championships. I can't argue that Styby finished 3rd since ex-crosser Sagan finished ahead of him, by the sweat of his brow, whether he be Slovakian or not.

Styby with Sagan and ? Bencik?

Rob Peeters and Arnaud Grand resp. 1st and 2nd on climb 1 of Stage 1.
Telenet Fidea is 6th in the Team Classification
De Bie is very happy with each of his riders. Compared to last year, they all have better results and more motivation. “Meeusen has already shown for weeks that he was in top form but also Arnaud Grand discovered he was better and better and more complete roadie. We knew already that he had a great motor but now the mind follows. He’s got potential. I’d like to give credit to Corne van Kessel. He’s also making good progress. He wasn’t good the last few weeks but he can hold on. About Rob Peeters, I’ve already been glad for weeks. Joeri Adams also has rhythm in the legs. Micki van Empel is admirable. If you know that this fellow had a shoulder dislocated in Serbia, then he is back on schedule.”

Bart Wellens also had bad luck (chain problem and lost 5’)
Bart Wellens about Kevin Pauwels:
"Wie heel veel indruk heeft gemaakt is Kevin Pauwels, hij reed lek en passeerde me halfweg de wedstrijd maar volgen kon ik hem niet. Zonder die pech zou hij wel eens de winnaar kunnen geweest zijn daar in Sankt Vith,"
(The one who impressed me a lot is Kevin Pauwels. He punctured and passed me mid-race but no way I could follow him. Without this bad luck he could have been the winner in Sankt-Vith)

22 Kevin Pauwels: 8th in Stage 3 (Mountains), 4th in Stage 4 (Maurits Lammertink attacked in the first of the final laps. Pauwels attacked a bit later to bridge the gap with about half a dozen riders but to no avail. They were caught after 5km but not Lammertink), 5th in the Point classification
32 Jiri Polnicky: 20th in Stage 3 (Mountains), in the 8 rider breakaway in Stage 4 for 60km and was first on the 1st climb of that stage.
37 Karel Hnik
49 Jim Aernouts: 2nd in Stage 2, 26th of mountainous Stage 3 (2 ranks behind Frantisek Rabon), 9th in Stage 4, winner of the Point classification
58 Arnaud Grand: 13th in Stage 4
72 Vinnie Braet
Micki Van Empel DNF Stage 4 has been racing through, with a brace around his shoulder !!! and was still 61th in the mountain stage 3’53” behind the winner and 53” behind Rabon !
Tijmen Eising DNF Stage 4 but soloed for 70km in Stage 2 and then caught & dropped by the peloton and 9th in the Mountain Classification despite retirement.
Klaas Vantornout DNF Stage 4 but 4th in Stage 3 (Mountains)
Rob Peeters DNF Stage 4 though he was 2nd on the first climb of that stage, 18th in Stage 3 (Mountains)
Joeri Adams DNF Stage 4 29th in mountainous Stage 3 (s.t. as Rabon)
Arnaud Jouffroy DNF Stage 4 but it was his first road race in a year and he really suffered but De Bie said he was him improving every day.

Sunweb-Revor 20th in the TTT (Merlier and Aernouts dropped), Telenet-Fidea 21st (van Empel dropped). TTT annihilated all ambition for a good GC for riders of both teams.
Tim Merlier crashed 10km before finish in Stage 2 and came back in the peloton. He didn’t finish Stage 3.
The Telenet-Fidea squad had trouble in getting to Prague since their flight from Eindhoven was cancelled. They had to hurrily find a B-plan and came to Prague from Amsterdam. Then they had to wait half an hour at the airport in Prague because the air conditioning system was still in the plane. They arrived at around 1.30am at their hotel.
“Stage 3 was a 198km long stage, 2800m slope, 5.5 hours of racing” said Vantornout (http://www.czechcyclingtour.cz/CCT2011-3.html). Three guys went on an early break and the bunch didn’t try catch them. On the final circuit, they had to climb a cobbled hill. Klaas attacked in the last lap and two guys followed, whom he beat in the sprint to finish 4th. Pauwels came in a group behind shortly afterwards but he said he had to do all the work.

Ex-crosser Paul Voss is 4th overall.

Nys was long in the lead, alone with a 1’ gap on a trio with Van Hoovels, Meeusen and Pauwels but then had cramps and Pauwels came back before the last lap and build a gap of 1’22” in just one lap. Everybody says it was a big upset but those who have followed Pauwels’ performances the last few weeks knew he could do it.

Sven Nys said that he thought the technical course was in favour of a crosser. In the end, he felt he had nothing left in the tank and Pauwels is a deserved winner. The best won.

More and more crossers are chosing for MTB. Pauwels said before the Nats that he’d rather race MTB than the road because on the road you need a bit of luck to win while in MTB the best riders pretty much always win it.

It’s Kevin’s second national title in MTB after the one in 2002 as junior. His first win for Sunweb.

Kevin also laid his flowers in front the memorial for the train disaster in Buizingen (Jan.2010):

“Trace vosgienne” (local MTB contest in the Vosges, France) – August 1


7 Steve Chainel
Steve got a last minute wild card. He was nowhere to be found for the last 3 months. He actually got a hepatitis on April 17 right after the Tro Bro and had to pull out of the Circuit de Lorraine, to retire from the Tour of Luxembourg and to pull out of the French Nats. By July 27 he was expected to come back at best late August. So he’s back earlier than expected. He’s a Vosgian himself.

On s’est lancé le défi avec mon mécanicien et ma famille, et je me suis pris au jeu. C’était super sympa. J’étais dans un bon jour et j’ai pris un beau départ, en plus du plaisir sur le parcours.

Good news for cyclocross fans since I heard during the live coverage of the Eneco Tour that Simon Zahner is coming back to our beloved sport.

And Stybar was really impressive today. ;)

Not the right thread, but didn't know where else to put it.

Sven Nys won't do MTB anymore this season. He's not doing the WC.
Does this mean he gives up on his OS dream?
Life's too important to be taken seriously
Doping sucks

Wouter, John and Xavi, you all will be missed.

So Matteo signed for Quick Step in July . Here he is in the second spot (that was the last stage after they first crossed the finish line). The pic is mine again. Sorry for the low quality.
