British rider leads from the front in muddy Czech race

helen wymanHelen Wyman (Great Britain) retained the title she had taken 12 months before, at the 2013 European Cyclocross Championships in Mladá Boleslav, Czech Republic. Just as she had done at the Koppenbergcross two days before, the 32-year-old British rider took the lead on the opening lap of the muddy 40-minute race, and managed to hold on to her lead to take a solo victory.

British champion Nikki Harris went one better than her own Koppenberg finish - and her bronze medal of 2012 - to take the silver medal, 1’11” behind Wyman, to complete a British one-two. French champion Lucie Chainel-Lefevre completed the bronze medal, as she managed to distance the Netherlands’ Sophie de Boer at the finish, another 13 seconds back.

The Under-23 Men’s race was won by Michael Vanthourenhout - the latest in the Belgian cyclocross family - who managed to escape the Netherlands’ Junior World and European champion - and Junior World road champion - Mathieu van der Poel. Gianni Vermeersch of Belgium took the bronze medal, as all eight Belgian riders finished inside the top-11.

The Youth Women’s race was taken by the Netherlands one-two of Anne Kalvenhaar and Sabrina Stultiëns, with Alice Maria Arzuffi of Italy third.

Another Koppenbergcross winner prevailed in the Junior Men’s race, as Belgian champion Yannick Peeters - the son of Omega Pharma-Quick Step directeur sportif Wilfried - took victory, ahead of the Czech Republic’s Adam Ťoupalík and Yan Gras of France.
