Have you seen Sanne Cant smile? So many reasons to watch last weeks race if you missed, Sanne Cant’s smile is one thing. Awesome and tight racing in perfect autumn weather is another one. A race where you can’t tell who is going to win
Women and men CX riders train as much to perform on their absolute top level. But there is a big difference in support by sponsors and pricemoney at races. And it seems hard to change. One who is doing as much as she can is Helen Wyman who raced a lot in USA where Twenty22Cycling stepped in last season to sponsor with money so women got the same amout of pricemoney as the men. Shouldn’t Europe be better?
The good thing buying a bike from a good bike company is that there isn’t any other brands with the same frame. It’s not like you find a Specialized Tarmac with for example Fuji on, if you find a frame looking the same it’s a unlegal copy.

But she isn’t alone riding that frame, Sophie de Boer and some others are riding Guerciotti Lembeek which to me seems to be the same frame:
Has Wilier just got the same frame as the CX company Guerciotti or is it opposite?
