Marianne Vos won the 18th Centrumcross in Surhuisterveen for the second time with European champion Helen Wyman in second. The world champion crossed the finish line first, just like last year with a half minute gap on British and European Champion Helen Wyman who was just in front of Dutch road racer Anna van Breggen who incredibly has only raced two Cyclo-Cross races this season.


Vos told a reporter: “I started racing Cyclo-Cross a bit later in the season, so I could really use this race to keep my pace up for the coming weeks”. This weekend the Elite Women’s field will travel to Italy for the World Cup race in Rome this Sunday. And next weekend most will ride in their own National Cyclo-Cross Championships.

Lars van der Haar (Rabo – Giant Offroad Team) got 4th place after a bad start early in the race. Rob Peeters gets his first victory this season with this win. US rider Jonathan Page finished in the middle of the pack.
