A number of Australian riders competed at the 2018 UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships in Valkenburg-Limburg recently.

Big crowds sidelined the 2900 metres long race course on the famous Cauberg climb to catch every glimpse of the racing over the weekend, which saw the Aussie kit on display.

The junior men began the world championship preceedings on a cold and grey Saturday morning with Annakin Williams (71st) and Zach Laarson (72nd) racing in their first ever world champs. 

Saturday also featured the elite women with Stacey Riedel (40th) who was riding at her second world championships and again achieved a career best result.

While on Sunday the Under 23 men including Aussies Nicholas Smith (40th), Ben Walkerden (55th), Will Ockenden (57th) and Declan Prosser (59th) battled through the muddy clay during the 5 laps.

 

In the elite men Garry Millburn(36th) was the only Australian competing and produced his best ever result at his third world championships.
