The 2014 UCI Cyclocross World Championship took place in Hoogerheide, Netherlands. The women’s elite race was pegged as a showdown between UCI World Cup champion, Katie Compton, and six time cyclocross world champion, Marianne Vos. Events don’t always go as planned but that doesn’t mean this race wasn’t an exciting one. The Hoogerheide course was a challenging track, with slick conditions and killer ruts in every corner. The riders who committed, persevered and came out on top.

How long is a pro women’s race supposed to run? I though it would be an hour like the men’s.
Perhaps the footage of Vos and Lechner coming into the tree turn will end the fruitless debate of step through vs. “step behind”. It makes no difference to the end result at all. Any imagined advantage gained via one method vs. the other is negligible.
Don’t you think?
