Nieuwkuijk UCI Mountain Bike Race in the Netherlands

The first UCI Mountain Bike Race in the Netherlands this year was on Easter Monday in Nieuwkuijk. Robby was the best ranked Team rider today with a 7th place.

Shortly followed by Ruben (17) and third came Gosse finishing 19th. Roy crashed and had a big struggle pacing back upfront. The race was won by Belgium rider Bart de Vocht.

Robby told after the race that he wasn't that fresh after having a busy weekend on the bike. ,, On the first single track I was out of the top-ten, but after I chased two groups I was riding for fourth place.'' After that De Bock was suffering from stomach cramps which limited him, in his efforts to reach for the podium.

Ruben Scheire came in 17th: "There was not enough climbing on this circuit and because I love climbing. Here, on the though 'road race circuit' it was hard for me to find a good pace.'' Our youngster Gosse van der Meer surprised us with a top-20 finish. ,,After, a bad start I chased group by group and ended up in a group of seven riders and I felt strong so I took the lead and in the last round there was one rider left in my wheel but, I beat him in de sprint head on and that was really satisfying!'' Roy Beukers struggled with mechanical problems which threw him back. ,,My feeling was good and next week I want my revenge in Havelte.''
