The opening race at the cyclo-cross World Cup round in Zolder was won by Mathieu van der Poel (Netherlands). Once again the world champion crushed his rivals. Already during the opening lap Van der Poel made the difference. Lap after lap he extended his lead on the relatively fast course at the Terlaemen car circuit. Logan Owen (USA) proved to be best of the rest. The US champion won the sprint of a four-man chase group at two minutes from the untouchable winner.

In the World Cup standings, Van der Poel maintains his maximum amount of points after four World Cup rounds. Owen moves from fourth into second place, just ahead of Martijn Budding (Netherlands). Three times runner-up Quinten Hermans (Belgium) is injured and didn't take the start in Zolder. He drops from second to fourth place in the World Cup standings. The next World Cup round is held in Rome, Italy on January 6, with the World Cup finale following two weeks later in the Netherlands.
