A clear winner did emerge in the end, with Ellen Van Loy beating the in-form Denise Betsema and World Champion Sanne Cant to secure the top spot on the day. In contrast, the absence of cyclocross’ biggest stars, Wout Van Aert and Mathieu van der Poel meant that there would be a new winner. On this occasion, it was Kevin Pauwels who seized the opportunity of a more open race and producing a strong display which proved to difficult to match for fellow podium finishers, Jens Adams and Eli. Phil Deignan retires - It has been a long career for 35-year-old Irishman Philip Deignan, fourteen years to be exact, one which included ten grand tours and a stage victory at La Vuelta a España in 2009. Having initially turned professional with AG2R, he went on to ride for Cervelo Test Team, Radioshack, UnitedHealthcare and joined Team Sky in 2014 who has since become his final team.
