Chatting with GP of Brabant Winners Vos and Meeusen and Bonus Gallery
With Marianne Vos and Tom Meeusen taking the wins at one of the first Euro ’cross races of the season, with a seriously star-studded field, our photographer and journalist Bart Hazen was on the ground to chat with the winners and capture the race as well.
Marianne Vos: “Actually I started a little bit too fast. I quickly created a gap but I had to make sure to keep the gap for the remainder of the race. The course was ideal for me, very fast and technical. I will ride two more races (Woerden and Valkenburg) before I will take a break. I feel I am getting tired and need rest. After some rest I can really start my build up towards the [World] Championships in January.”
Tom Meeusen: “It was my intention to start the season very strong, and with two wins [including Laarne last weekend] I can say I succeeded. On this course I knew immediately I was one of the favorites but Nys, Van der Haar and Walsleben were strong too but it was impossible to get away. If you created a gap you had to keep the pace very high too keep it. But I think it was a lovely Saturday afternoon for the audience with a good end for me.”
