Cyclo-cross world championships
CX Worlds: Vos continues reign on great day for Dutch, Belgium's Nys regains men's crown after 8-year gap
Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands may have announced her abdication this week, but Marianne Vos's reign as the Queen of Cycling continues, taking her fifth successive world cyclo-cross championship in Louisville, Kentucky, and the sixth of her career.
The four events that constitute this weekend’s UCI World Cyclo-Cross Championships in Louisville, Kentucky will all now take place on Saturday after warnings of flooding caused organisers to cancel Sunday’s programme. The championships are due to be broadcast live on the event website and the UCI’s YouTube channel for countries such as the UK without live TV coverage.
Marianne Vos of The Netherlands yesterday claimed her third world cycloscross in a row, and the fourth of her career, leaving behind the American Katie Compton on the final lap of the 2.8km course in Sankt Wendel, Germany. The men’s event was also won by the defending champion, the Czech rider, Zdenek Stybar.
