In the US, the National Championships represent the conclusion of the cx season. In Europe, it's just another race in the middle of a busy season, albeit a pretty important one. While only a handful of US CXers travel to Europe to continue racing, everything continues as usual the other side of the pond. And they don't waste any time getting back to the regular grind either. A good chunk of the men took to the start line in Otegem on Monday, the day after they competed in their respective national championship races.

Kevin Pauwels got back on the winning track, after a streak of less than impressive races. That was good news for Jay, the only team in the 2012 FGBC CX Pool to have Pauwels on his team. Jay wins the vicarious version of the race in Otegem with 150 points. Miriam was second, with 125 points. And King Andy finished in third place. He had 90 points.

In the overall race, Jonah picked up 80 points to pad his lead over Chris O, who came up with a big fat goose egg. The J-Train now leads by 560 points over Chris. I remain in third place, 80 points behind Chris. King Andy is another 80 points behind me.

Full results and overall standings here.

Up next, we travel to Lieven, France for the 7th round of the world cup series on Sunday.
