Cyclocross: De Knegt ‘certainly satisfied’ with Dutch performances at European Championships
18.29: Eli Iserbyt won the European title in Rosmalen. The 23-year-old Belgian drove to the gold for his compatriot Michael Vanthourenhout. Lars van der Haar took the bronze.
For Iserbyt, it is the first European title among the elite. Last year the rider from West Flanders was second behind Mathieu van der Poel. The Dutch reigning world champion, who also won the European Championship the last three times, was missing in Rosmalen. Iserbyt was previously European champion in the promises (2017) and in the juniors (2014).
For Van der Haar it is his third medal at the European Championships. He took the title in the first EK competition for elite in 2015 and grabbed the silver behind Van der Poel in 2017.
“Overall, I am certainly satisfied. I think we have performed almost to the maximum,” said national coach Gerben de Knegt. “At Puck Pieterse, I had taken into account a podium spot, but that she wins surprised me. She is a freshman promise with the ladies, handsome that she will do that,” said De Knegt, who looked back on beautiful competitions. “Often you end up in a tactical jousting game at a European Championships or World Championships. Although it was a quick round, everyone has raced freely. I am in favour of that.”
The time differences on a fast track are small, so it is important to make few mistakes. “That‘s what you saw with Lars van der Haar,” said the national coach. “If he had had a good start, he might have been able to drive for profit, now a third place was the highest possible.”
Among the riders under 23 years of age, the Belgians were missing in Rosmalen. “We win there with Ryan Kamp. That was the best winner we could have for that race”, found De Knegt. “He is also the world champion and not for nothing. There was no discussion about how he got that title thrown into the lap because others were not there.”
