Video: An Amazing Look at the World Cup Women’s Race in Aigle

Van Paassen on the trainer

I’m so happy to have stumbled across Petitesreine’s video of the prelude, race action and aftermath of Sunday’s World Cup women’s race in Aigle, Switzerland. No narration, just ambient sounds, stunning imagery and a glimpse behind the scenes of the top end of cyclocross. The short film has a little of the feel of the classic La Course en Tete, and to watch Sanne van Paassen crank on the trainer is reminiscent of a similar scene with Merckx riding the rollers in his attic.

Check it out after the jump!
