Today’s win in Valkenberg was Katie’s 22nd World Cup Cyclocross victory and also happened to be her 100th UCI race win. Congrats Katie!
Katie returns to Cross Vegas for the first time in years to dominate and control the front of the race from the gun to the line. Katie rode with a group of four almost to the end, but was overtaken by Meredith Miller in the final sprint who ended up winning, with Katie ending up third.
Katie took the win in Boulder today, with Elle Anderson putting up a good fight for the first couple laps before Katie pulled away. Meredith Miller rounded out the top three.
The 6th round of the World Cup in Rome today was uncharacteristically muddy, where Katie Compton had close to a perfect day on the bike. She started well and stayed near the front, breaking off into a group of three during the first lap. It soon turned into two, with just Katie versus Vos, as they rode together for the rest of the race in familiar fashion. On the last lap, Katie turned up the heat, put some space between her and Vos, and ended the race 24 seconds ahead of Vos.
With her fifth win on the World Cup season, Katie also wraps up the World Cup series and will finish the season as the champion. It will be interesting to see if she races the final round or choses to rest up for the World Championships.
Katie Compton makes it two World Cup wins in one week, both times beating Vos from a slow-ish start to an eventual lead later in the race. Great work and a strong showing, congrats Katie!
With just a couple World Cups left in the season, Compton has nearly wrapped up the series.
Katie takes a win at Namur over Vos, after Vos took some time out for back surgery. After a slow start, Katie clawed her way back and just after the halfway point in the race, she made this pass on the run up and never looked back. This win puts Katie even further into the World Cup points lead.
Highlights from Katie’s win in Druivencross today. Looks like a tough hilly, muddy course that required everyone to grind it out.
Katie taking a tough win in a sandy Scheldecross: Vrouwen race today in Europe. This is a nice 4min recap of the whole race from Belgium TV. The most interesting part is the lapped traffic trying to “race” Katie and almost causing her to crash.
