Hoogerheide Cyclo-cross World Cup
The cyclo-cross peloton concludes the UCI World Cup season once again in Hoogerheide, on the Netherlands/Belgium border, with awards for the overall being given in all four categories.
While the elite women, under 23 men and junior competitions are virtually wrapped up, the margin of elite men's leader Kevin Pauwels (Sunweb-Revor) over Sven Nys (Landbouwkrediet) is too slim to call. Pauwels currently tops Nys by twenty points in the overall standings, and needs to finish at least fourth if Nys wins to claim his first ever overall win in a major series. This isn't an impossible mission for Pauwels, who has not finished outside of the top four in a World Cup round this season.
