#CXNats: these are your new women’s cyclocoss national champions

by Anne-Marije Rook


There were national championships being held all over Europe, the United States and Australia this weekend. While Australians were battling it out on the road, Europeans and Americans fought snow, ice, mud and freezing temperatures in search of cyclocross glory.

The Northern Hemisphere countries tend to collectively hold their national cyclocross championship events in January in the lead-up to UCI World Cyclocross Championships, which will be held in Bieles, Luxembourg on January 28th and 29th this year.

For many, winning a national title not only earns them a special edition kit, it also tends to secure selection for the world championships. For us fans, it’s a good indication of who’s riding well and what we might expect when the world’s best go head-to-head at the end of the month.
