De Amerikan Henry Kramer werd tweede!

Henry Kramer of California's Cal-Giant CX squadra took the silver at the UCI Master's Worlds! What a great job on an incredibly sandy course in Mol. As said before, absolute inspiration. I'll be there next year.

I was told that the race officials each year do a completely random lottery line up (e.g. no call ups). But Henry said on his blog that the Belgian Ron who won, got 'tha call up'. Dunno what that means but if anyone cares to comment on how this is handled over there for teh UCI Master's Worlds, I'm all ears.

Yep, the call up is a crap shoot. I was there last year. They say they put all numbers in a hat and randomly pull them before staging....I was there with Will Black last year and he says it's a bit different each year. Heard from his wife today that he got called up 55th or so out of 60-70 guys...he ended up with 9th today. It is a tuff start into the sand for sure, a good call up is nice and so is some luck.

Hey Jon! Great to hear from you man. Yeah, that about corroborates what I've been hearing....but who knows how those Belgians' race number's 'magically' surface to the top of the hat and get selected for the prime frotnt row call up. Home field advantage...

I want to tap into your knowledge of your visit last year. I am already starting to dial in mechanic help etc. Indeed, dreamin about cross already.
