After following women’s CX and XC racing it’s great to see development. Really happy about the results CX results in Hoogerheide today. Eva Lechner has been the Italian champion for some years and done some CXraces, been top 5 in the end. But today she stepped up with her first World Cup win!
And not just a World Cup but the one with all the favourites and everyone wants to find their shape to next weekends World Championship. Everyone is aiming for a good result but just one can be on the top. Marianne Vos didn’t seem to have the legs today and Katie Compton had some problems breathing. Katerina Nash ended 2nd and Pauline Ferrand Prevot 3rd:
Sanne Cant also did a great performance today and ended 4th which helped her win this seasons World Cup.
I’ve also been trying to find some shape today and was out training with CK Valhall this morning, Carl-Johan took a picture of the rest of us before we left:
