“I was on the second row start so I quickly could move to the head of the race”, analysed Neff. “The course suited me. I could be all the time with Sanne Cant stay and enjoyed the time that I the cross could colors. I spent a little time with the family of Sven Nys in the run-up to this cross. As explored I with Sven and Thibau earlier for the trail and maybe I will be on the stage. It was a unique experience. I come from the mountain biking and you can that the discipline is not to be compared with the cyclocross. In the field you have any time to fight for every meter. In the mountain bike, but do you sometimes long climbs but you can recover it during the descent. That was certainly not in. I am very satisfied with this nice victory.”

A pity, but there I lose the cross. In the final lap I had of Neff must pull away because I felt me very well. In the strips uphill, I was even better but then had to also, if necessary, with my face in the mud, lie down”, sakkerde Sanne Cant.
