Eli Iserbyt is for the second time in his career, world champion cyclo-cross in the promises. The West-Flemish dominated from start to finish and cannot tolerate anyone in his area. This title gives Iserbyt the silly season of Marlux – Bingoal still color.
The Frenchman, Benoist shot the best out of the starting blocks but also the defending champion Joris Nieuwenhuis and Eli Iserbyt had their start not missed, in contrast to the British number one favourite Tom Pidcock and the Belgian champion and kampioenschapsrenner Thijs Aerts. Front took Nieuwenhuis decisively the course in the hands. Iserbyt saw the danger and went immediately in pursuit. Pidcock passed after the first lap in twenty seconds with Aerts in his wheel.

Front made Him a slider which Iserbyt was able to come and join us. Nieuwenhuis had the pitsstraat in which Iserbyt a hole could save. What a contrast with last year where Iserbyt, overcome by stress, not in the wedstrijdverhaal occurred. Again a difficult fietswissel for Nieuwenhuis, as a result of schoenproblemen, made sure that Iserbyt at the end of the second round is already a gap of twenty seconds on the first pursuer Nieuwenhuis had.
A unleashed Iserbyt, in 2016, already world champion in the promises in the Attic, went in the third round although the spectacular ruin but the scenario has changed. Iserbyt continued to dominate, She continued to try and Pidcock fell completely away in the mud. In the battle for the bronze took the Frenchman Grass is in the lead, but also Thijs Aerts was not far away.
At the end of the third round, it looked very good for Iserbyt. His lead on Him amounted to 24 seconds, the Grass was followed by a handful of seconds further, the rest seemed exhausted in the fight for the medals.
Iserbyt was the final lap in almost a half-minute ahead of the Nieuwenhuis – Grass. The West-Fleming didn’t make any mistake more and drove onbedreigd to his second world title, the Dutchman Nieuwenhuis was creditable second for the Frenchman Grass. Thijs Aerts was fifth and second compatriot.
