Cyclist Ceylin del Carmen Alvarado has won the last World Cup match of this season.

The Dutchman was the fastest in Overijse, Belgium, on Sunday and thus had a good dress up for the World Cup next weekend.

The 22-year-old Alvarado kept fellow townsman Lucinda Brand behind and the third place was for another Dutchman, Manon Bakker.

Brand was already certain of the overall victory in the World Cup.

The Telenet-Baloise Lions rider had won the first three crosses.

Denise Betsema had been the strongest in the fourth cross in Hulst.

In the corona-hindered season, the World Cup series consisted of only five games.

Alvarado was also the best in the Flandriencross on Saturday.

The Rotterdamse has had a training camp and seems in optimal shape in the run-up to the World Cup in Ostend, where she will defend her title.

Continuing cyclocross World Cup uncertain

Later on Sunday the men will ride in Overijse, but Mathieu van der Poel will not take action.

Wout van Aert will drive his last race before the World Cup.

Incidentally, it is not certain whether the World Cup will take place in Ostend next week.

A corona outbreak was detected in the Belgian coastal town this weekend.

"The World Cup is currently under discussion," said Mayor Bart Tommelein on Sunday.

"Everything will depend on the evolution of the number of infections."

The mayor confirms that it concerns infections with the South African variant of the corona virus, which may be much more contagious.
