MEDIA RELEASE: JORIS NIEUWENHUIS WINS U23 WORLD CYCLO-CROSS CHAMPIONSHIPS
 
After taking the overall UCI CX World Cup title and a win at Hoogerheide last weekend, Joris Nieuwenhuis (NED) became U23 World Champion in Bieles, Luxembourg today.

Although the 3200m, long course was covered in snow throughout the week, warmer weather conditions made for a slippery, technical course in Bieles. Nieuwenhuis, pre-race favourite, was able to perfectly navigate around the course, which featured steep drops, climbs and multiple off-camber sections. Early on in the race, Nieuwenhuis attacked and gained a substantial lead over the field. He maintained his advantage and went on to take the win and Team Sunweb's first ever world title.

After taking the title Nieuwenhuis said: "I knew I was ready and I felt good coming into the race, although you never know how the legs feel until it actually starts. I just rode my own race and went as fast as I could, which went really well. I'm extremely happy to take the world title and pleased to give Team Sunweb their first ever rainbow jersey."
