Blanca Fez then began her speech: “It may have seemed as if this victory was too easy, but the truth is different.”
“I had to fight really hard for this and get it through. At the start of the race I tried to attack a few times, but they wouldn’t let me go.

The Kermiscross track in Ardooie was very muddy in places due to heavy rain this morning. “Fortunately, there was only one uphill area,” Fass said. “The rest of the course can be described as slippery, but above all technical. That’s in my best interest.”
Shereen Van Anweruj (Second): “Overall, a good feeling on the first pass. I still have to get used to the break, I haven’t done a lot of cross-training yet. Hopefully next weekend in Tabor will be better technically.”
