Sanne Cant had a tough trip to Iowa City in 2016, but fortunately, 2017 is a new year and the Jingle Cross World Cup is back for its second year. After heading back to Europe after Iowa in 2016, Cant went on to have an outstanding season that culminated with a world championship in Bieles.

I caught up with Cant after her Friday morning pre-ride and asked her about her redemption tour in Iowa City. Also, check out the interview to find out which fellow cyclocrosser Cant most admires and what her secret to sand mastery is.
