Ben Berden won the pro men’s cyclocross race at the Sea Otter Classic on Saturday.

The Belgian crossed the finish line six seconds ahead of Troy Wells and Ryan Trebon, who finished second and third.

Berden, 37, has competed on the professional cyclocross circuit since the mid-1990s. His resume is littered with first-, second-, and third-place finishes. During the 1995-96 season, Berden was Belgium’s U23 Cyclocross champion. In recent years, he’s mostly competed in races on U.S. soil.

Berden’s last victory came at the Boulder Super Cup in October.

In the pro women’s race, Caroline Mani raced to victory ahead of Mical Dyck (+6 seconds) and Nicole Duke (+30 seconds).

The Frenchwoman lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado — at least for this summer — as she trains and races in the U.S. She also competes in mountain biking and some road cycling.
