Tom Meeusen hits stride in Superprestige Gieten
The fifth round of the Superprestige Series was a much anticipated one, but nobody was expecting Tom Meeusen to win the race. The 23-year-old Belgian beat all of this season’s big names with a sprint win out of a four-man leader’s group including series
leader Sven Nys.
“I’m super happy because this is my first big win,” said Meeusen to the race press. “It’s sad to see what happened with Sven because I’d rather beat him on his true value. Then again, ‘cross is ‘cross and today I won. Riding on a frozen subsoil was to my
advantage because the best riders can’t transfer their power on the bike like they usually do.
