USA and Europe get in the swing of things

Manon Baker continued her excellent start to the season with a well-earned 2nd place in Wiekevorst behind Belgian star Kim van de Steene. Manon is racing for Experza-Footlogix
and this is her first season with the team. After her first UCI race next weekend in Europe, Manon will head to USA for the first two rounds of the World Cup.

Into its second weekend of UCI events, things in USA stepped up with the Rochester Cyclocross being the first UCI C1 ranked event on the calendar. Storming on the scene in her first events was Canadian Maghallie Rochette who took the win both days. “On day one I used Grifo and day two I switched to Chicane. They felt super good on the course” commented Maghallie.

Meanwhile back in Belgium, Thibau Nys started his first cyclocross as a junior and took the win. The Belgian champion from the youth categories will now be looking to continue his progress and begin his first ever world cup events as part of the dominant Belgian team.

Current junior world champion Ben Tulett took a low-key start to season with a win in the UK. Making his first start on board his new Stevens Bike, Ben took a comfortable win ahead of big season for new team IKO-Beobank.
