Belgium left third after the mixed relay test at the World Cyclocross Championships | World Cyclocross Championship 2022

Italy is the first (unofficial) mixed relay world champion at the World Cyclocross World Championships. The Belgian quartet began trying the UCI as the favourite, but Italy and the United States proved their worth.

Excellent sweet start

So third place is not hoped for first place. However, Belgium was the frontrunner, also due to the absence of the Netherlands, at the start of this beta test. The event in a nutshell: 4 passengers each ride one lap and relax each other.

It was a promising start for our country. Daan Soete had to start really hard in the first place and was also in the lead on a tough slope.

Kiona Crabbé was thrown into battle with a difference of about 13 seconds. However, the Czech Republic was stalking Michael Burros. He took over after a financial problem. Then Crabbé sprinted in fourth.

Still on stage

Then it was up to Alicia Frank to nibble at this backlog. The knight also fought, but had to leave the American Honsinger, among other things.

All eggs are in Niels Vandeputte’s basket. In the lead, on the last lap, a duel between the American Funston and the Italian Toneatti ensued.

Vandepot started furiously. Everything to bridge the gap with the frontrunner, but it just didn’t get that far. Italy won. So Belgium has to settle for third place.
