In the first clash between all the top cyclo-cross riders at the second round of the UCI Cyclo-cross World Cup in Nommay, France, Katherine Compton (Planet Bike) showed that she's currently the leading lady in women's cyclo-cross. The American powered away from a group of seven riders with Marianne Vos during the second of seven laps.

The fast and greasy grasslands suited the stronger riders and two laps later Compton shook off the Dutch cyclo-cross world champion. The American pulled off an impressive solo and grabbed her sixth career World Cup win with a 35-second lead over Vos.

Compton - currently leading the UCI 'cross classification - was also able to extend her lead in the World Cup rankings as second-placed Daphny van den Brand only finished fourth in Nommay.

An interesting chasing group included Hanka Kupfernagel - who made her comeback on the highest level after injury - and also Czech-American Katherina Nash.

In the end it was the Netherlands' Sanne Van Paassen who won the sprint for the remaining podium spot, ahead of her disappointed compatriot Van den Brand and Nash, at 1:27 behind Compton. Half a minute later Kupfernagel outsprinted France's Christel Ferrier-Bruneau for sixth place.
