After losing Saturday's second round of the 'cross world cup to Sven Nys, Dutchman Bart Wellens took out Sunday's Superprestige #2 race on home turf in Sint-Michielsgestel. The racing was hard and fast, with Wellens proving the stronger of the two 'cross strongmen to take victory. The 2005-06 season is already shaping up as another Nys vs Wellens season-long super slug-fest, with a busy schedule ahead and both riders in great early-season form. Last season Nys prevailed, capturing another world championship title, but Wellens will be determined to change things in 2005-06.
