Ceylin del Carmen Alvarado is aiming to defend her title at the UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships held next weekend in Ostend, Belgium. In an interview posted on Alpecin-Fenix's social media account Monday, Alvarado says that she is it will be a difficult race but that she has a strong chance to win the world title for a second consecutive year.

"I think I have a big chance to extend my world champs title, but it will be a difficult race because there are other riders who are strong, but I wouldn’t say that I don’t have a chance that day," Alvarado said. "I’m feeling good and I’m feeling confident. My coach is also saying that I’m on a good level right now."

The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
