World champion Marianne Vos exacted her revenge on the technical circuit in Loenhout, Belgium, on Friday when she topped Katie Compton at Azencross. Vos (Rabobank) was best in the heavy mud, keeping Compton (Trek Cyclocross Collective) at bay a day after the American won the World Cup in Heusden-Zolder.

Helen Wyman (Kona) was third in the Bpost Bank Trofee stop, and currently leads the series.
