The 2022 Overijse UCI Cyclocross World Cup brought another new title winner for the season.
Puck Pietserse (Alpecin – Deceuninck) put in the work on the course the day before, testing lines and testing the muddy course’s speed limit.
She used that knowledge to go on the attack early and kept a strong solo lead for the rest of the race. This was the race Pietserse was waiting to shine in.
Fem van Empel (Pauwels Sauzen – Bingoal) rolled in a minute later and then Shirin van Anrooij (Baloise Trek Lions) around 30 seconds later, completing another all-U23 Women’s podium sweep…of the Elite category.
