Niels Albert (BKCP-Powerplus) and Katie Compton (Planet Bike) both consolidated their leads in the third round of the UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup in Nommay, France today.

In the men's race it came down to the last lap where the World Champion came out on top in a sprint against Czeck rider Zdenek Stybar (Telenet-Fidea Cycling Team). Sven Nys came in third 9 seconds later.

Albert admitted he was a bit surprised with his victory saying to hln.be, "It is an unexpected victory, I must admit, but one that tastes very good."
