Thibau Nys has won the junior World Cup cyclo-cross race in Namur. He beat Swiss Dario Lillo by 45 seconds. Following his fourth consecutive win the Belgian has also secured the overall World Cup win.
Dario Lillo took an early 10-second lead on Thibau Nys and Lennert Belmans, but on the second lap Nys quickly reversed those positions and took ten seconds on the Swiss rider. On a tough course the field was completely blown apart, although Belmans and Remi Lelandais had an entertaining battle for third place.
Nys ended up winning the race with a sizeable 45-second gap on Lillo and 1:19 on Lelandais. Belmans was fourth a further eight seconds behind, ahead of Italy's Filippo Agostinacchio.
Nys has also secured the overall win in the junior category of the Telenet UCI World Cup.
