Francis Mourey (Francaise Des Jeux) continues his impressive run this season, with his 10th win perhaps the most significant yet – the French tricolor jersey will stay on his shoulders for another year. The win marks Mourey’s eighth national cyclocross title, and his sixth in the Elite ranks. He won the race by over a minute, and will look to use the momentum as he rolls into the final rounds of the World Cup and the World Championships.

Mourey was able to ride through what he later described as “heavy legs” in the first few circuits of the course. He told Agence France Press that he’s enjoying better form than in past seasons. “The goal is a podium place,” said Mourey. “I think that it’s attainable this year.”

Many pundits picked Mourey’s teammate, Steve Chainel, who tightly battled Mourey but came up just short in 2010, as the biggest threat, but Chainel could only muster fourth. Road climbing phenom and best French finisher in both the Tour de France and Giro d’ Italia, John Gadret (Ag2R La Mondiale) took second ahead of Arnold Jeannesson (Francaise Des Jeux). Other prominent roadies included Sandy Casar in 12th (Francaise Des Jeux), Sébastien Hinault (Ag2R La Mondiale) and Jérôme Pineau (Quick Step Cycling Team).

Caroline Mani (CC EtupES Le Doubs Pays De Montbeliard) was a bit of a surprise winner in the women’s race, beating cyclocross World Cup regular and 2010 Junior road race world champion Pauline Ferrand Prevot (A C Bazancourt Reims) in a sprint. Christel Ferrier Bruneau rounded out the podium in third.
