Wyman wins as British women dominate in Belgian mud

British champion Helen Wyman (Kona) grabbed the win in the first round of the Superprestige Series with a steady performance on the heavy and technical course in Ruddervoorde, Belgium. Halfway through the rain-soaked race she gapped compatriot Nikki Harris (Telenet-Fidea) and maintained a ten-second gap for the remainder of the race. The most surprising performance in Ruddervoorde came from Lucie Chainel, wife of Steve, who rode intelligently to beat Sophie de Boer (Telenet-Fidea) and Amy Dombroski (Crankbrothers).
