Cross Predictions Wrap-Up – Week 6

It was a wild weekend of cross racing that saw Martin Bina continue his winning streak, Jeremy Powers continued domination of C1 races in the US and a bizarre start in Ronse that may have cost Sven Nys a victory. Bina extended his winning streak, as I predicted, and has now won three-straight Toi Toi Cup rounds. Niels Albert took home his first victory of the season (as predicted) in a race that saw rival Nys start nearly 25 riders back. Finally, Jeremy Powers cemented his place as the rider to beat stateside, with a pair of wins in Colorado. Here’s how my predictions did this past weekend:
