Belgian champion Sven Nys (Crelan-AA Drink) rode the pack off his wheel on the second lap to win the first round of the Bpost Bank Trophy series on Sunday.
Mathieu van der Poel (BKCP-Powerplus), who got off to another fast start at the Cyclocross Ronse-Kluisbergen, escaped a strong chase with just over two laps to race, taking second on the day, 50 seconds down on Nys, though he nearly gave the runner-up spot away with a botched showboating jump on the final lap.
Klaas Vantornout (Sunweb-Napoleon Games) couldn’t quite take advantage of van der Poel’s bobble and finished third, five seconds later, as Kevin Pauwels (Sunweb) edged Lars van der Haar (Giant-Shimano) in a photo finish for fourth.
World champion Zdenek Stybar (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) returned to ‘cross on Sunday, finishing eighth.
Van der Poel quickly put six seconds on a chase led by Nys with Tom Meeusen (Telenet-Fidea) sitting third.
As Nys caught van der Poel, Stybar shot forward to take the lead of what was a 10-man lead group going into lap two.
Van der Poel took over again early in the lap as Pauwels slipped into third, ahead of Nys. But Stybar and Nys soon began throwing down, too, and Nys took the lead on a long, grassy run-up.
The Belgian champ quickly opened his own bit of daylight over Stybar and van der Poel.
Nys took a seven-second lead into the start of lap three, with eight to go. Van der Poel kept the pressure on in the pursuit forging a four-man chase with Pauwels, Vantornout and van der Haar. Stybar was leading a second chase just behind.
With seven to go Nys had extended his advantage to 13 seconds, and van der Haar and Pauwels came forward to help drive the chase.
A lap later Nys was all by himself and setting an unrelenting pace, 21 seconds ahead of the pursuit. Van der Haar seemed to be struggling a bit, and the second chase was down to Meeusen and Stybar.
With five to go Nys was a full half-minute up on the Pauwels-Vantornout chase. Stybar and Meeusen were hovering just behind.
Pauwels pried open a small gap on the lap, forcing van der Poel to chase, with Vantornout on his wheel, and finally popping van der Haar off the back.
Next time through the start-finish Nys led by 35 seconds. Van der Haar was five seconds off the first chase with Stybar and Meeusen 20 seconds behind. But the Dutch rider fought back on as the lap came to a close.
With three to go Nys was 48 seconds in front of the four-man chase. Meeusen and Stybar were at 1:17. Van der Haar tried a move in mid-lap, and then van der Poel made one that stuck, opening a gap over the rest of the chase and hitting the line 47 seconds behind Nys.
A lap later Nys led van der Poel by 47 seconds. Behind the first chase, Meeusen managed to escape Stybar.
Come bell lap, Nys was long gone, 48 seconds up on van der Poel. Vantornout led van der Haar and Pauwels over the line at 1:10, with Meeusen at1:37 and Stybar at 1:46.
The Belgian champ had a rare miscue on the final go-round, dumping it going into a grassy run-up, but he had plenty of time in hand and got straight back to business. He finished with nearly a minute’s advantage over van der Poel, who was best of the rest.

BEIJING (AFP) — Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Sharp) won the third stage of the Tour of Beijing on Sunday, ending a season-long victory drought at the final WorldTour race of the year.
The longest stage of the tour, the 176km stage served up tricky climbs followed by rapid descents, and Farrar came out of nowhere near the end to take the victory.
“I had the legs, but there was definitely some luck involved there because it was a hard day and I just barely made it over the last climb and I had a real hard time getting back to the front of the race,” he said.
“I think I came out of that last corner really way too far back and I just got lucky that a hole opened up and I was able to go for it.”
It was the first win of the year for Farrar, who said it “was a long time coming this season.”
“It was a year of seconds and thirds and fourths so to finally win so close … I’m really happy.” he said.
Philippe Gilbert (BMC Racing Team) remained atop the overall standings after winning Saturday’s stage two, which was cut by about a quarter as Beijing’s notorious pollution soared.
But wind helped disperse smog on the city’s outskirts on Sunday, easing conditions for the riders.
“Today was better. We were able to breathe almost normally,” said Gilbert, the 2012 world champion.
“It was not an easy day today. But the team controlled well and then at the end we also got help from some sprinter teams.”
He was hesitant to predict his fortunes for stage four on Monday, a 157km course which includes a climb of more than 12km.
“There will be attacks from everywhere, so we will see,” he said. “There’s not so many good climbers here, so if I lose the jersey I can also stay in a good position and still have points awarded.”

- Howdy from KC,
I am helping my friend sell his Cannondale Evo SS Team 2013 scheme in size 56cm. It is equipped with the SRAM Red/green 10-speed exogram levers. Full disclosure - he went down in a crit when the racer in front of him braked during the corner's apex. His hip took 80% of the impact followed by his peddle, then his saddle (which was replaced), and the right shifter (see the picture showing marks on the hood and some at the top of the carbon). All damage is purely cosmetic - even my friend, LOL. He raced the bike from the start of July 2013 through mid-August 2014. He is switching teams, and he will be riding the big "S" next year.
