Vos and Stybar=Winners of the day

Marianne Vos won the sprint in front of Emma Johansson in the world cup race in Vårgårda today:

Great win but would rather have seen Emma Johansson take it 🙂 And in Belgium it was the 7th and last stage of the Eneco Tour. A tour I’ve almost missed. If you also missed it you should see this highlights from the last stage. Zdenek Stybar attacking like Vos and take the win of both stage and GC. Love it!

(sorry for the dutch and flemish videos, didn’t find any better)

Euro domination, racing faster than you

This sucks. We can see men’s races in full and live on Sporza or Vier but why can’t we see the womens race when they film it too? Here is highlights from the CX World Cup in Rome, half the womens race. Showing that you can win world cups just by pedalling hard, attacking and then pedal harder. Hoping that it will be the same in Louisville in a month. Marianne Vos for world champion (again)!

Hopefully with a Sanne van Paassen back in top shape like the beginning of the season at the Worlds too, would love it.

CX World Cup Heusden-Zolder results

Interesting race but with two too fast Colnagos, as most of the time. Zdenek Stybar rode well but not in front for the gold after Niels Albert attacked. Got Meussen with him and Sven Nys was chasing. Meussen dropped and Nys caught. So it became a race with Nys and Albert again. Albert rode fast but Nys showed why he is as good as he is. Seeing where Albert have most problems and then attacking their on last lap. Sven Nys won ahead of Niels Albert. Zdenek Stybar was in the chasing group but attacked at the end and ended 3rd:

Marianne Vos won the womens race with over a minute down to Katie Compton. Sanne Cant 3rd.

The video from Plzen

If you see one CXvideo this year, or in your life it should be this one. It shows how hard CX is, how beautiful it is, how european it is and it shows that women is racing as hard as men or maybe even harder for less money.
