Marianne Vos has already seven world CHAMPIONSHIP titles in the field, but now also has its first victory in the regelmatigheidscriterium of the world Cup in the bag. “And I’m very happy with that”, responded the rider of the CCC-Liv Team.
Fox finished the job in the final lap where on the last sloping strip away took of Denise Betsema. “On television doesn’t seem like it, but it did firm up on the strip for the bars,” she said. “I knew that I had a chance and a few meters could take on Denise. Betsema has a fast sprint in the legs, so that’s where I wanted to be sure not to let it arrive, and so accelerated I.”
With success, she drove to the victory and secured with four victories in the world Cup, also from the gc. “The victory in the world Cup is very pretty, but the goal was to have it today just to do good in the contest. I am very happy that it was successful in this fast-paced, but pretty tricky trail.”
Denise Betsema could live with a second place. “I knew that I was in the wheel of Vos had to sit as I like the slim wanted to play,” she said. “But the other girls came closer and so I did also my share of the work. That cost me in the end perhaps the victory, as when Marianne turned on, I had nothing in the legs. I was stikkapot and can live with this second place.”
Maud Kaptheijns completed the Dutch podium. “Here, I am very happy with it, because it was long ago that I had a good result raced in the world Cup. Heusden-Zolder was also good (fifth, ed), but this is even better, and do best, however, virtue. I had to far to come back and have me at the front, so I am pleased with this cross.”
