ALBERT AND VOS DESTROY THE WORLD...
Niels Albert and the rest of his Belgian counterparts absolutely destroyed the rest of the world today at the Cyclocross World Championships in Koksijde, Belgium, making a near mockery of the race early on and simply defending their home turf. The race basically looked like a training ride for the Belgie Nationals as they toyed with the rest of the world and watched Albert clean house and regain his world title. On the women's side, it was once again Vos in a sleeper taking her 473rd world title. The Neds rode well today in Belgium on the women's side and took two of the podge spots. Katie Compton fought to the chase group several times for the USA, but numerous bobbles became too much to overcome for her to match her last two podium efforts at Worlds. she fought and rode like a true champion, and represented on a very tough day in Belgium.
