It was a hard battle in both the men's and women's races at the Zonhoven round of the Superprestige series in Belgium this weekend. 

In the women's race, Sanne Cant looked poised for a winning comeback early on, but was quickly swallowed up by the hard-charging Dutch women including winner Annemarie Worst. Cant went on to finish sixth, with Worst taking the win, followed by Ceylin del Carmen Alvarado, Yara Kastelijn and Alice Maria Arzuffi. 

In the men's race, Toon Aerts took the win, followed by Laurens Sweeck and Eli Iserbyt on the podium. One main standout in the race was UK racer Tom Pidcock, who's finally back on form. 

Check out the images from the race from CyclePhotos' Balint Hamvas.

Not all of the same was rideable. Coming through the mud into loose sand challenged racers.
