It’s been a couple seasons since Kona Cyclocross racer Helen Wyman stood on a World Cup podium, but the wait is now over! After getting a strong start, Wyman took second place at the Bogense, Denmark World Cup aboard her Super Jake.
“That was a pretty good weekend in Denmark. After one lap of the course on Saturday, I wasn’t particularly keen and if I’m honest I wasn’t feeling very positive about it. However after a swift talking to from the coach, I realised that if I break the course down into its component parts, it was actually a pretty simple challenge. Half was flat out and not my strong point, and the remainder was a running event. With that in mind, I started to ride it differently and felt positive. When the opportunity opened up to move forward from my second-row start, I grabbed it and chased Sanne. It was fun to battle with the World Champion, but she was the strongest out there and fully deserved the win. It was good to be back on the World Cup podium after a few seasons away, and I’m hitting the next events confident I can keep my good recent run going.” – Helen Wyman
