Americans Arrive For World Cup Stop In Bogense, Denmark

IMG_0840.jpg

The UCI World Cup resumes on Saturday in Bogense, Denmark.

The fourth of nine World Cup events, Bogense will see the arrival of Americans Ellen Noble of Aspire Racing and Cannondale-CyclocrossWorld.com’s Stephen Hyde to European soil.

Hyde’s teammate, Kaitie Keough, also returns to Europe after finishing eighth at the last World Cup stop in Koksijde. Keough currently sits third overall in the World Cup standings.

Here’s what to watch for in Bogense.

American Women In Denmark

The past three World Cup races have proven predicting a winner in the women’s race is a fool’s errand. The reigning world champ and current World Cup leader Sanne Cant currently leads Sophie de Boer in the overall standings by 20 points, with Keough only 24 points out of the lead. 

While Cant’s won her share of races this season, including the World Cup stop in Waterloo, she’s also suffered from crashes, illness, and the odd off-day.


Joining Keough and Noble as Americans on the start line in Bogense is the newly crowned Pan Am champion Katie Compton, who appears in strong form after an up-and-down start to the season in which she had an allergic reaction to a bee sting, was hit by allergies, and suffered a bout of food poisoning.

American women Courtenay McFadden, Rebecca Fahringer, and Crystal Anthony — who all rode strongly two weeks ago in Louisville — will also line up in Bogense.

Mathieu Out For Revenge

In the men’s elite race, all eyes will be on Mathieu van der Poel, who’s seeking retribution after a last lap mechanical in Gavere on Sunday cost him the win. 


Van der Poel has been untouchable in World Cup races this season, taking a commanding lead in the first lap and either holding on or even stretching the gap over the course of the race.

Can anyone stop the silky smooth Dutchman who’s undefeated in the series so far? We’ll see on Sunday.

Toon Aerts On Top?

The 2017-18 cyclocross season’s dark horse has become Toon Aerts, who’s been nipping at the heels of favorites Van der Poel and world champion Wout van Aert over the last month or so. 


On Saturday, Aerts won the Soudal Series race in Niel, and scored a podium finish at the Superprestige stop in Gavere. Bogense could be Aerts’ breakout ride of 2017.
