Our hats (and helmets) are off to Marianne Vos, cyclocross world champion, who took the gold medal today in the women’s road race at the 2012 Olympics in London. Maybe it was the pouring rain and poor weather conditions that reminded Vos of cyclocross, but her sprint to the finish in last 200 meters was unparalleled.
