Philipp Walsleben (BKCP-Powerplus) won the Cyclocross Rucphen. After a somewhat cautious start, he turned up the heat as the race progressed and relegated Jim Aernouts (Subweb-Napoleon Games) and Eddy van IJzendoorn (NatuBalans) to their places. Dutchman Thijs van Amerongen (AA Drink) was also doing well in the race, but was robbed of all chances by a broken derailleur hanger.
In the women's category, Marianne Vos (Giant-Liv) won relatively well ahead of Nikki Harris (Young Telenet-Fidea). Third place went to Pavla Havlikova.
