On a sunny Sunday in Luxembourg, local hero Jean-Pierre Drucker won the international cyclo-cross of the LP Muhlenbach. On a fast and dry circuit, the racing was spectacular, and the decisive move was made only on the very last lap. Czech rider Emile Hekele had the fastest start with the Luxembourg champion Gusty Bausch on his wheel, but on the second lap, nine riders came together in the lead. In addition to Bausch and Hekele, there were also Belgians Daelmans, Soetens, Berden and Govaerts, the Frenchmen Pagnier and Perrin, as well as Drucker.
With three laps to go, four-time winner of the race Arne Daelmans took the lead alone, only to see David Pagnier, Ben Berden and Drucker joining him a little later. On the last lap, Jean-Pierre Drucker attacked on the most difficult part of the lap and took a small advantage. Finally he won the race with a nine second advantage on Daelmans and Ben Berden. Whereas the Luxemburger celebrated his first win in an international elite race, the foreign riders dominated in the other categories with victories from Belgian Stijn Mortelmans in the junior category, Lars Van der Haar (Ned) in the novices, and Imke Hartogs (Ned) in the women's race.
