With the 2015 World Championship Races of Cyclocross over, many Europeans and other international athletes are either putting their feet up until they mount their road or mountain bikes, or get ready to dabble in the last month of international cyclocross races, most of which are the C1 events until the end of February. As with the American Team, we’ve rounded up the social messages from the international athletes.
Both bronze medalists offer gracious warmth for the new world champions: one is a teammate, the other a fellow countryman. Sanne Cant also wishes to rescind the comments she made during the post-race press conference.
