Videos from the Cyclocross World Championships!

It’s no secret I’m a huge Marianne Vos fan, so there was only one result I was hoping for from the CX Worlds in Louisville….  I wasn’t expecting the HUGE amount of videos the UCI provided!  Check these out…

The ENTIRE race!

But if you don’t have time for that, check out some key moments, and post-race fun…

    It was awesome, Sarah! I especially loved how Vos at the finish gave that nice bow to the crowd… She, like Merckx, is class apart from the rest and that in no small part comes from a lifetime of training, sacrifice and dedication to her sport. Chapeau, M!!

      Vos is always great like that – I think it’s because she really, REALLY loves to race, she’s still excited by every win, and genuinely loves to see people loving the sport – which makes it VERY easy to be a fan!🙂

        Yes indeed! And, sure enough, the river rose today and flooded most of the park (a lot of pics on twitter)… here’s a pic tweeted by KFC’s hubby of Compton, Anton & Marianne – http://instagram.com/p/VR5x5Zpbt2/

        Yeah, I saw all the photos Lyne (who runs Podium Insight, and did the PR for Louisville) was posting of the floods – that section below the limestone stairs, for instance, was completely flooded. The race organisers and volunteers did a bloody good job, in the circumstances (though I did hear the race ran out of beer!!!!! At a cross race!!!!! Can you imagine?🙂 )

        And did you see SvP’s tweeted pick of MV with her new shoulder-tatoo? Unfortunately, it got pulled down…

        Oh, I saw this and thought of you – Marianne Vos demonstrating how CX riders get clean for the podium – with a bucket and flannel! Craziness!

        Hah! That has to be one of the muddier races she’s done in Belgium – looks like from 2010 or 2011…

        BTW, more CX Worlds videos (all in English), courtesy Cyclocross Magazine –
        Marianne and Sanne before the race (I wonder if that is where Chris/PdC interviewed her):
