In a surprise grand finale, the Frenchman preceded Belgian Kielich and fellow countryman Benoist in the U23 competition of the UEC European Cyclo-cross Championships
The French Team joined the group of the victorious nations at the 2019 UEC European Cyclo-cross Championships in Silvelle di Trebaseleghe (Padua, Veneto, Northern Italy).
Mickael Crispin surprised his rivals in the U23 competition, winning ahead of Belgian Timo Kielich, second, and his compatriot Antoine Benoist, third, after an astonishing final lap. Fourth place for Belgian Toon Vandebosch.
No satisfaction for the Italian National Team in the first four races of the programme. However, the home selection will seek redemption with Alice Arzuffi and Eva Lechner in the Elite Women’s race.
