This morning we had video on-bike video from Saturday’s Cyclo-Cross World Cup in Milton Keynes shot from the bike of Belgium’s Sven Nys – this evening, we have action from the women’s race, with front and rear cameras attached to US star Katie Compton’s bike.
Compton finished the race second in a very hard fought sprint finish with Belgium’s Sanne Cant, with Great Britain’s Nikki Harris third.
In this video, the host country’s other big hope for a home win, Helen Wyman, can be seen having a fall just before the 1-minute mark.
The chute effectively put paid to the British champion’s challenge for the podium places, although she would make up enough ground to finish eighth.
Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
