Joris Nieuwenhuis continued his cyclocross season with a race under the lights at Nacht van Woerden. Having finished third at the event last season, Nieuwenhuis was keen to repeat his podium finish this year; aiming to go even better.
It was a fast and exciting evening, with a lot of action throughout the hour. Nieuwenhuis was part of a trio that escaped early into the race that worked well together, building up a good gap. A small crash forced Nieuwenhuis to drop back, but he fought and battled his way to the head of the race again, ultimately ending the race in second place.
