Sweeck tops Eckmann in Baal

US team posts strong results

Laurens Sweeck took his sixth victory of the season with a dominating performance at the GP Sven Nys in Baal, Belgium. With Sweeck well in the lead, the battle of the race came for second place, where American Yannick Eckmann went head to head with Sweeck's brother Diether.

Diether took the lead from Eckmann for a time, but the American was able to fight back into the lead and put ten seconds into the Belgian by the finish to claim second place.

Sweeck then had to fend off the surge from Floris de Tier to hold onto the final podium spot, which he did by only two seconds.
