Lucinda Brand won the Cyclo-Cross World Cup this weekend. However, the rider from Dordrecht did not have to intervene in Flamanville. Because Denise Betsema did not race in France on Sunday, just like Brand, Brand can no longer be overtaken in the standings.
Brand took the overall World Cup victory for the second time. The world champion will defend her rainbow jersey in two weeks. The World Cup will then take place in Fayetteville in the United States.

Eredivisie Women: Feyenoord free and a narrow defeat for Excelsior
The Eredivisie started again this weekend not only for the men, but also for the women. Feyenoord have yet to act. This was true for Excelsior. The Kralingers simply couldn’t provide a stunt in Eindhoven on Friday. PSV were too strong last (1-0) with the difference minimal.
However, Excelsior’s next game will take time. The women of Kralingse will not play again until Friday February 4. VV Alkmaar is then the opponent on its own ground. Next week Feyenoord will meet the ladies of Alkmaar.
