Lucinda Brand won the World Cup in cyclocross this weekend. However, the knight from Dordrecht was not required to take any action in Flamanville. Since Denise Betsema didn’t race in France on Sunday, just like Brand, the brand could no longer be overtaken in the standings.
Brand achieved the overall World Cup victory for the second time. The world champion will defend her rainbow jersey in two weeks. Then the World Cup will be held in Fayetteville, USA.
