Sweeck is de sterkste in de Beekse Bergen.

Bear Lorenz Swiek sprints to win the World Cup for the second time in a row in Pixie Bergen | cyclocross world cup 2022

After Maasmechelen, Laurens Sweeck (Crelan – Fristads) scored again in the World Cup. At the fast track of the Pixie Bergen race, the man in the form of Michael Fanthornhout and Lars van der Haar got off the wheel of the sprint. “I’m almost at the top level,” Swick said. WB leader Eli Esserbitt pulled fifth once again after getting lost at the start.

Eli Eserbet had to chase an almost complete cross on the fast track at the safari park. The WB leader hit the pedal at the start and had to fight for 15th in the early laps.

Laurens Sweeck didn’t miss his debut. He immediately dived into the wheel of Leader Kun, who had to fire the turn on the second lap after slipping into the turn.

For example, Suek and van der Haar have secured behavior. Vanthourenhout and reborn motocross rider Nieuwenhuis were the only riders who could keep up.

After a strong comeback, Iserbyt also wanted to join, but Swick didn’t like it. Accelerate quickly.

Swik supreme in the enemy

On the last lap, Iserbyt was able to join the leaders. Running is no longer possible. The World Cup No. 1 seed finished the New Cross Country World Cup in fifth place.

He saw how Swick was head and shoulders above the rest in the sprint. The Maasmechelen winner started early and continued his fantastic effort until the end.

Van der Haar finished second, ahead of European champions Vanthornhout and Nieuwenhuis.

In the World Cup standings, Soyek is 4 points closer to leader Eserbet. Next week Druvencross in Overijse is on the programme. Usually, Iserbyt has an advantage there.

Laurens Sweeck: “I’m almost at the top”

Lawrence Swick (Winner): “He was too far at first, but I went and didn’t look back. For a moment I thought Michael Fanthornhout was attacking, so I decided to go for him. I’m gradually improving to my best. 100 percent, I was a little sick last week, but the race works for me.” well “.

Lars van der Haar (second): “Disappointment prevailed anyway. I lost control of the leading group because I couldn’t jump over the bars. It would have been better for me if I didn’t have to deal with Ellie too. The meters I lost in that duel were far from over. Laurens was of course strong Very fast in his sprint, even though I was just as fast.”

Michael Fanthornhout (third): “I know I’m not the best runner, so I tried to make a hole on the last lap. I was good, but it wasn’t good enough. The podium was the highest I could get. I felt so good. Then it’s a shame that the course is so fast that That I can’t make a difference, although I’m happy with the situation.”

Laurens was of course very strong in his sprint, even though I rode just as fast.
