Marianne starts cyclo-cross season in Essen


Marianne Vos starts her cyclo-cross season next Saturday (7 December) in the Brico Cross in Essen (Belgium). She will focus more on cyclo-cross after CCC-Liv’s training camp (9-19 December).

Marianne: “I chose to take a break after the end of the road season and to take the time to work towards cyclo-cross, resulting in a somewhat shorter cross-season. That may not be ideal in light of a favourable starting position, but I accept that. People who know me know that I enjoy cyclo-cross and that I love to get in action this winter. In particular after the training camp with CCC-Liv, more races have been scheduled with some nice, important ones.”
