Procycling - - GALLERY -

25 Novem­ber 2018 A tra ic jam of more than 60 riders hoik­ing their bikes up a sand dune formed dur­ing the Cy­clo-cross World Cup round in Kok­si­jde. Mean­while, hordes of fans watch on, un­per­turbed by the Novem­ber chill. World cham­pion Sanne Cant can just be seen at the top of the hill round­ing the cor­ner, but it wasn't to be her day. De­spite ac­cel­er­at­ing early on, she strug­gled with ill­ness and in­ished sev­enth. In­stead, it was this sea­son's rev­e­la­tion, the Dutch­woman Denise Bet­sema, who cap­i­talised. She ac­cel­er­ated away on the last lap, and took her irst big win.
