Puck Pieterse dominates Fem van Empel’s rivalry at the Troyes Cyclocross World Cup

Puck Pieterse returns to cyclocross action this weekend at the fourth round of the UCI World Cup in Troyes, France. It was only his second race of the now-compact ‘cross season, as the 21-year-old took a month-long break from racing after charging through a non-stop calendar of cyclocross, road and mountain bike competitions.

It was a sizzling season in three disciplines for the Fenix-Deceuninck rider in 2023.
