Michael Vanthourenhout beats Laurens Sweeck to attain Belgian cyclocross title



Michael Vanthourenhout (Bingoal-Pauwels Sauzen) added a primary Belgian championship title to his palmares in an epic version in Loenhout. The European champion cemented his standing as top-mudder by driving Laurens Sweeck (Crelan-Fristads) off his wheel within the closing lap.

Sweeck appeared to have the measure of Vanthourenhout however, within the heavy rain-soaked race, one small mix-up within the materials zone proved to be sufficient to swing the race in favour of the Bingoal rider in any case the opposite opponents had fallen behind.
