A bit of luck and a lot of strength got Belgian Sven Nys his first World Cup race victory this season, beating his Rabobank teammate Richard Groenendaal by 25 seconds, with Sven Vanthourenhout (Quick.Step) finishing third. Nys benefited from a crash by Groenendaal whilst the Dutchman was leading, and after Nys caught him, he opened up a gap.

World Cup round # 2 winner Kamil Ausbuher was the fastest at first on the 2800 metre Pijnacker circuit in the Netherlands, but Dutch champion Richard Groenendaal quickly caught up on him. After the first of eight laps to ride, Groenendaal was well on top of the situation, leading with 25 seconds over a group including Davy Commeyne, Sven Nys, Sven Vanthourenhout, Petr Dlask, Zdenek Mlynar and Enrico Franzoi.

Groenendaal's lead remained at about 35 seconds, with Nys attacking to get him, until lap four, where the Dutch champ missed his path and crashed. Not badly hurt, the Dutchman immediately remounted his bike but Nys was already there. Behind, Sven Vanthourenhout also tried to catch the front riders, but with the Belgian showing no signs of fatigue, even Groenendaal couldn't follow up. Nys got rid of him during the sixth lap and finally won a World Cup race, his eighth victory this season, 25 seconds faster than Groenendaal.
