This weekend has seen the gap for most of the cyclocross national championships to take place. There’s a couple of exceptions but the majority of national jerseys have been handed out. For some, it’s their first elite national victory. 18-year-old Line Burquier taking the victory in France feels like the confirmation that she’s going to go on to have a great career. She had a great battle in Liévin with A.S. Bike teammate Hélene Clauzel, with just 14 seconds separating them.
For others, it’s just one victory amongst many. Sanne Cant has extended her own record to a barely credible 13 national cyclocross championships in a row. Christine Majerus is on her own long streak with 12 victories in the Luxembourger championships. For Marianne Vos, it was her 7th national championship but the first since the 2016-2017 season. Other young talents retained their jerseys. Unsurprisingly, one was Kata Blanka Vas in Hungary who won by almost 6 minutes. Harriet Harnden took a narrow victory in the British Championship ahead of Annie Last and Anna Kay. Kay continues her run of 3 straight podiums and a future national championship is surely on the cards with a friendly course.
Below is a list of the newly-crowned women’s cyclocross national champions, some are known to us from road cycling. Such as Sweden’s Clara Lundmark and Norway’s Mie Bjørndal Ottestad. But as always, there are plenty of cyclocross specialists winning too.
