Katie Compton (Trek Cyclocross Collective) won the GP Sven Nys in Baal, Belgium on New Year’s Day. The US champion beat world champion Marianne Vos (Rabobank Women) after fighting out a race-long duel. Vos was set back by a flat tyre in the final lap. It’s the third time out of four races Compton has beaten Vos in the past two weeks.

Vos got off to a good start but she was quickly joined by Compton on the fast course in Baal. Nikki Harris (Young Telenet-Fidea) rode most of the race alone in third place. In contrast to previous years there wasn’t a lot of water on the course and the sun even greeted the women during their race. It was the first race from Compton on her new Trek Boone 7 bike.
