« on: October 12, 2013, 17:44 »
Bpost Bank Trophee
Formerly the Gazet van Antwerpen Trofee, the Bpost Trophee is the main belgian cross series. Held mostly around Antwerp it used to be raced on a points basis but in 2012/13 switched to a time basis. Any riders that do not start a race, fail to finish, or finish more than 5 minutes behind the winner, are automatically classified as finishing 5 minutes behind the race winner.

    Will this thread also work as the discussion page for cross races?

    The first classification cross of the season was immediately a hit. Cold, wet, and most of all muddy. Very, very muddy. From the start, it was a tough race for the field. A particular nasty downhill section caused some casualties: Pauwels crashed, and lost a lot of time here. Early attacks were led by Walsleben and Van Der Haar, but after a few laps a group of lead contenders gathered. Nys and Albert were rght on the front as always, accompanied by Vantornhout, Van Der Haar, Van Amerongen and Walsleben. 
    A crash in the front group by - I think - Walsleben caused Vantornhout and Nys to go free. The two rode ahead, until Nys really turned the screws. The veteran world champion got away from the Belgian champion. Behind him, Albert realised he had to respond and attacked. He got up to a few seconds of Nys, who at some point seemed to be waiting for his compatriot but then accellerated again to make a definitive gap. The Czech rider Martin Bina had crashed earlier in the race, but made a brilliant recovery and passed to catch up to Albert, eventually ending second to Nys at 17 seconds, with Albert a further 3 seconds back. A group of Vantornhout, Meisen, and Van Amerongen ended at 1.08 from the leader.

    It's clear Nys is not slowing down at all: first big race of the year, first win. Albert is again the closest challenger, although it is unclear how strong Pauwels was. Meeusen again marred by bad luck, or perhaps it is something else? Van Der Haar started well, but faded a bit towards the end. The course was probably too hard for him though, he'll be better at the faster races. Bina was great to see, his win last year was also in tough conditions - snow, in that case. I hope he'll be able to show his strength a few more times this year. Walsleben and Meisen also great, a German presence. Six out of the top 10 non-Belgian (though 3 Dutch) is a nice start to the season, let's hope the rise of the internationals will continue for the rest of the season.

    Ive just split the bpost out, and then will start threads for superprestige and world cup. Three threads should cover things nicely. :D
