Lucinda Brand conquers Flamanville World Cup



Lucinda Brand (Trek Baloise Lions) claimed her second UCI Cyclocross World Cup in the space of a week after she soloed to a resounding victory in Flamanville. Marie Schreiber (SD Worx) rode strongly to place second, while Leonie Bentveld (Pauwels Sauzen-Bingoal) rounded out the podium in third.

Schreiber made a trademark fast start, powering to the front on the opening lap, while Brand was a little slower off the mark after struggling to clip into her pedal as the race got underway. Bentveld and her teammate Denise Betsema joined Schreiber at the front midway through the first lap, but Brand was also quickly up to speed and moving her way through the field.
