Eva Lechner second place at Hoogerheide World Cup!
The 2018 Italian national 'cross champ and Clif Pro finished the world cup series in third overall.
Eva Lechner rode fabulously to a second place result at the UCI World Cup cyclocross finals in Hoogerheide, Netherlands. The 2018 Italian national 'cross champ and Clif Pro finished the world cup series in third overall. Sanne Cant won her fifth world cup of the season with 10 seconds to spare, and also took the overall title and crown. Kaitlin Keough finished second in the overall.
Eva said, "I'm really happy! I was suffering the whole race. Sanne was really strong. It was a hard course here".
Maghalie Rochette, dramatically improving in the world cups, rode to 13th place (18th last weekend in France) which is her best world cup performance this season. Rochette is the top ranked Canadian elite woman in the series. Mag thinks her recent results has something to do with keeping things in perspective with diversions during her travels, including a visit to a local beer brewery.
Rochette commented about her race: "No Balls, No glory. That was my mindset heading into the race. It worked out good enough and helped me fight my way from a poor start to a 13th place. I was pretty happy with that performance and had a blast on that fast and fun course."
Katerina Nash had a tough race start and got tangled up by a rider who unhooked her cables, forcing her to ride in single speed fashion to switch out her bike at the pits. Still, she passed about 30 people and managed to finish in 20th in the field of 62 elite racers.
