Marianne Vos has won the cyclocross World Cup in Waterloo. During her first cyclocross race of the season, the 34-year-old rider from Team Jumbo-Visma Women sprinted to victory in a convincing way after an exciting battle. She also took the lead in the World Cup standings.
The differences were already made in the first lap. Halfway through the race, Lucinda Brand managed to create a gap with the first group, but Vos managed to close the gap soon after. After a neck-and-neck race, Vos came out on top. Brand and Denise Betsema completed an all-Dutch podium.
"In the last lap, it was all or nothing"
“I suffered terribly”, Vos said. “It went so fast. I had to push hard in every corner. Especially in the last lap, it was all or nothing. I know Lucinda pretty well and I knew she doesn’t leave much room. It was a battle to the finish. It was really nice to win here.”
