Juniors: Jarno Bellens prevails

Jarno Bellens (Young Cycling Talent (D & D) Saturday afternoon in Koksijde’s Belgian title in cyclo-cross in the junior division. Bellens placed his decisive attack in the penultimate round, when he showed his competitors Gerben Kuypers and Witse Meeussen behind. Meeussen picked up eventually, the silver, the bronze went to Niels Vandeputte. Kuypers had to settle with the fourth place.

“My plan was to put as soon as possible in the attack to go and then I would see where I came out,” said Jarno Bellens after arrival. “Ultimately that is the correct policy proved to be though I had not initially immediately a good feeling during the contest. In the global warming felt the legs heavy, and it took until about the third round for me feeling better. I could be a twenty seconds head start to build and that was because in the last round I got it heavy.”

“I was still faced with a technical problem, so I’m in the last bit of sand is not until the end could walk. Therefore I lost a lot of my lead but finally I had enough. I think I may say that I the title have earned,” says the new junioreskampioen from Heist-op-den-Berg.

“I have a very good season behind them, I already have six times the chance to win, and then there is always some pressure when you are on a Belgian championship at the start. I am happy with the stress I can handle, had been the conditions as well. It was a hard cross that was at the end of last year on the world Cup is also already the case. After the first round, I thought it would be. Only in the penultimate round when they saw a mistake made, I came there all the way through. Then I thought: ‘now I must keep going to the finish’.”

On the hall of fame, he follows Show Vandebosch. For Bellens, it was the first veldrittitel. The cruisers (U16) in the BMX ” and he was already once Belgian champion. “I can still not really believe. I think it will only trickle down when I get to my parents and friends. Also during the cross, I was not at all sure of the victory. Only in the last fifty metres, on the straight line, I knew that the inside was. Fantastic feeling!”
