After a disappointing result last week at the opening round of the Cyclo-cross World Cup, Francis Mourey wanted to be back on top on the 2nd round. Done!
Francis gets an excellent 4th place on the 2nd round of the World Cup
In Tabor (Czech Republic), Francis was straight into the chasing group behind the 2 leaders: Lars Van Der Haar and Philipp Walsleben. He was followed by the Belgians Klaas Vantornout, Niels Albert and Kevin Pauwels.
In the last lap, Francis turned up the heat and threatened the leading duo. He came back with Kevin Pauwels in his rear wheel.
They missed taking the lead by only 10 seconds, and the winner of the day was Lard Van Der Haar. The FDJ.fr rider comes back with a lot of confidence and a great 4th place in his pocket. He’s full of promise for the rest of the season.
The third round of the World Cup will take place in one month, on November 23rd in Koksijde (Belgium).
