Thomas Mein (GBR)
A win at the Koppenberg cross showed already in the junior category that the Briton was cut out for cyclocross. The inhabitant of Newcastle finished 9th in his latest international championships, the U23 world and European championships in 2019. The British rider performed well at the U23 World Cups last winter, but missed the final podium because of a mechanical during the final in Hoogerheide. Mein was the best at the World Cup in Tabor in November, and missed the podium in Koksijde one week later. He added a World Cup podium in Nommay in January.
