2 February 2015

With great pride we saw Michael Vanthourenhout become World Champion!    This years World Championship Cyclocross were held in Tabor, Czech Republic. In the U-23 category the Belgian riders were the ones to beat finishing with five in the top-10. Michael Vanthourenhout was the strongest and finished solo with a 10 second gap. The young rider saw his chance growing when other strong riders opted for a start in the Elite race.   As Vanthourenhout is riding for the Sunweb-Napoleon Games team he won his race on the FFWD F4R!

First youngster Michael Vanthourenhout secured his overall World Cup victory with a second place in the final race.   At the pro race the strong Mathieu van der Poel was clearly the strongest of the day. Behind him was a exciting battle for the podium spots with a surprisingly good performance by Gianni Vermeersch of Sunweb-Napoleon Games who finished third just before teammate Pauwels.    The fourth place was enough for Pauwels to secure his second overall victory in the World Cup!
