Cyclocross World Champioship in Bieles: W.H.A.T A D.A.Y!!!! Junior Men, U23 and Elite Women

W.H.A.T A D.A.Y!!!! First of all MY rider Sanne Cant finally won the world title in the Elite Women cathegory. She deserved it, had to fight and fought for it. BRAVO! I'm very very very happy.
Then, in the Junior Men race we had a full British podium, something new and exciting. Thomas Pidcock confirmed he's a classy crosser and will wear the rainbow jersey.
Annemarie Worst's victory in the U23 Women race was touching as she dedicated it to her friend Annefleur Kalvenhaar, who died following a heavy crash during a mountain bike race in 2014.

Sanne Cant:
“I can’t believe it. The jersey is mine for a whole year. I dreamed of it since I was six years old. It’s twenty years ago. I really can’t believe I beat Marianne Vos. She‘s the seven-time world champion. She’s really history. It’s an incredible day, the most beautiful day of my life. 
When turning onto the road Vos was still on my wheel and I thought I would lose again. I was sprinting until the finish line but there wasn’t any orange coming up. I still couldn’t believe it when I crossed the finish line. Beating Vos in a direct duel adds more glamour to this victory.
After my crash I lost the belief but suddenly I saw Vos standing and thought, now it has to happen. I thought she was side lined much longer, and I was surprised to find her back on my wheel a few moments later
I wanted to drop her on that climb but that didn’t work out. I did realize that she was also on the limit. I hesitated to shift to the big ring. It all goes so fast. Luckily she had nothing left in her tank. If I had shifted, I would’ve come to a standstill.”

Marianne Vos:
“I’m a bit disappointed. You know anything can happen in such a race. It was a fierce duel. We matched each other today, and then it came down to the last lap. She’s technically the best in the pack so it would be hard to beat her on this course. It’s hard to get a big lead on this course because you always have to pay attention to avoid mistakes. I was handed the lead when Cant slipped away".

Annemarie Worst:
“It was so difficult, the course, so slippery. You had to stay so focused. On the first lap, I was trying to ride away from the girls but that didn’t happen. I tried again, and again. On the last lap I could ride away from the other girls so I’m very happy. I dedicate the win to my friend Annefleur Kalvenhaar [died following a heavy crash during a mountain bike race in 2014I ride for her.
I knew I had to stay focused and ride the track clean. I was thinking that they can also make mistakes. I’m so happy. I passed Noble on the inside and pushed through. I knew I was better in those sections. I knew I should not stay behind her there.”
