Ian Field in Oostmalle
Sluitingprijs Oostmalle 2014

We closed the book on the 2013-14 cyclocross season on a springlike Sunday in Oostmalle.

I wasn’t exactly sorry to see this season — one filled with difficult moments — go, but it was nice to have one more day out there at the races, especially with golden sunlight pouring down on us and Christine Vardaros’ annual end-of-season cookie party to celebrate as well.

I’m proud of the work I did this season, especially what I did at the World Championships. I couldn’t have done it without a lot of support and encouragement, from my friends at Velo, from Balint Hamvas of Cyclephotos.co.uk, from Brook Watts of CrossVegas, Geoff Proctor and the EuroCrossCamp, the Page family, and a host of other folks as well.

And of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of my amazing (and hilarious) wife and son. There aren’t really words to say how thankful I am to have them in my life.

Here’s one final photo gallery, from a warm, sunny day in Oostmalle.

Sluitingsprijs Oostmall - Michael Vanthourenhout

Picture 2 of 29

U23 Michael Vanthourenhout showed he's for real with a World Cup win at Valkenburg, a European championship, and a silver medal at Worlds. It may be heresy, but I love the bright blue of his European champion's kit. Sunweb ought to make all their kits blue.
