Belgian sensation Niels Albert continued his hot streak in Eerde-Veghel, The Netherlands, with a win in the second race of the Superprestige Series on Sunday. After finishing third in the previous day's Koppenbergcross, Albert soloed into the finish to record another solid win following his triumph in the second round of the world cup in Tabor, Czech Republic, on October 26.

Albert beat world champion Lars Boom and winner of the Koppenbergcross event, Sven Nys, who complained of a sore back and a dislocated finger suffered during his win in Oudenaarde. "I knew I had to make the gap early on in the race as many riders would need some laps to get going after the hard race on the Koppenberg yesterday," said Albert. "Today I was feeling good and I know that with the right form I'm able to ride constantly at a fast speed; today that proved to be enough for the victory."

Albert's victory moved him into the overall classification in the Superprestige Series, tied on points with Nys. "Nys was my age when he won the Superprestige Series for the first time and my goal is to repeat that feat," said Albert after his latest win.
