CycloCross Worlds 2006 – Elite Men

January 29, 2006 – It was almost a Belgian podium sweep at the 2006 World Cyclocross Championships in Zeddam, Holland today. The men’s elite race took place just after the women took their turn on the slick yet tacky course. Belgian race favourite, Bart Wellens, took the silver medal, as has was inched out my fellow countryman Erwin Vervecken who won the gold medal and the title. Frenchman Francis Mourey grabbed the bronze and another French rider, Steve Chainel, hot on Mourey’s heels but unable to catch him, was fourth.

The USA’s Jonathan Page made the top ten finishing in 10th less than a minute behind. The sole Canadian rider was Greg Reain who finished 47th overall.
