Top Cyclocrosser Successful On the MTB and On the Road

Wietse Bosmans wins the Belgian Marathon Championships, Loris Rouiller wins the Cross Country U19 category in Switzerland, and Sanne Cant finishes third in the sprint at the Belgian Road Championships.

Wietse Bosmans of ERA-Circus is Belgian Marathon Champion. After 115km on his STEVENS Sonora SL war he out-sprinted Roel Paulissen, who wins Silver at the finish line in Malmedy. For Bosmans who as a cyclocrosser normally is used to races not longer than a little over an hour this is his first title over a long distance. ”I am really proud of that,” he said after the race.

Bosman was at the front of the field from the beginning – until a flat tire cost him a significant amount of time. ”I had to close a gap of three minutes, but I really felt good today so I was able to catch up.” During the further course of the race, he broke away together with last year’s winner Roel Paulissen. ”It became obvious that we had to duel it out”, the 26-year old Bosmans said and he continues: ”I am really happy that I eventually prevailed in the sprint.” Especially regarding the fact he had to re-gain three minutes, he really does deserve this title.

Loris Rouiller Is Swiss XCO Champion U19
Meanwhile Loris Rouiller had started the U19 cross country race in Switzerland. The Swiss and European Champion in this category gave proof of his talent on his Sonora SL. The race in Andermatt turned into a one-man show featuring Rouiller as the main actor. At the beginning of the second lap he broke away from the peloton for good and rode all remaining laps solo. ”I had a good start and felt terrific. It’s great that it worked-out for me so well.”

Sanne Cant Wins Bronze in the National Road Race
Cyclocross World Champion Sanne Cant in summer is at home on the road. In Binche, Belgium she determined the course of the race for quite some time and in the finale was part of a four-strong head group. On the cobbles in the center of Binche close to the French border, it was her to start the sprint – obviously a little too early, but good enough for third place.

”It really feels great! After hurting my knee in a crash in Oostmalle, I wasn’t able to train for quite a while. The Belgian Road Championships only was her third race on STEVENS Comet so far this season, so she was even happier about the Bronze Medal.
