Seven-time cyclo-cross World Champion Marianne Vos (CCC Liv) will make her ‘cross debut next Tuesday at Ethias Cross in Essen. The versatile Dutchwoman used Essen last year to kick off an abbreviated ‘cross season, coming away with a solo victory on the muddy course.

Vos competed in five cyclo-cross events last season, winning two and finishing fifth in the Dutch National Championships. An injury to her groin prevented her from lining up at the World Championships in Switzerland. Winning her first world title in cyclo-cross in 2006, Vos last earned a Worlds podium in 2019 in Denmark with a bronze.
