The Other World Champ

Speaking of World Champions, our's was not the only one ripping up the course at Whitmore's Super Cross Cup last weekend. Erwin Verveken (above, repping the new Cambridge Bicycle T-Shirt), the current World Champion of Cyclocross made the rare trip across the Atlantic to mop up some valuable UCI points. He looked strong and in control during both days of racing. Day one saw him take Wicks at the line, while a rock sent his derailleur into his rear wheel on the last lap of Sunday's race. The WC was a nice guy and a class act, posing for photos with spectators who were all swooning over the rainbow jersey. Check him out in this Cyclofile video riding the run-up in front of Trebon, Johnson, Powers, and Wicks:
