World Champion Marianne Vos powered away from rivals Daphny van den Brand and Sanne van Paassen half way through the rain soaked race and proceeded to win in style, finishing solo with a thirty second margin.  Vos showed she is on track to do well at the worlds in Tabor next weekend.

Due to  overnight rain and an intermittent drizzle the course coated in slippery mud. Katie Compton, was sidelined for the second week in a row by the leg cramps that have interrupted her racing occasionally over the past several years, meant that no one would have to chase the dominant American rider through the mud.

From the start the action was non-stop; first down was Czech National Champion Katerina Nash who crashed, catapulting over her bars and then had to play dodge-em to recover her bike and return to racing. 

While Nash tried to fight her way back into contention Vos, van Paassen and van den Brand opened a gap of ten seconds on a c hase group composed of Amy Bombroski and Elizabeth Brandau.  On the front the duel of the three Dutch women continued with attack after attack as each sought an advantage.

Finally Marianne Vos opened a gap coming out of an off camber turn in the middle of the third lap, given a few meters. Vos doubled her effort and started to pull away gaining 30 seconds by the end of the fourth lap. Behind her van den Brand and van Paassen worked well together sharing the chase effort, but as hard as they rode they couldn't make a dent in the gap of Vos.

Shortly after Nash had reached the front of the chase; She immediately attacked hoping to close to the leaders, only  German champion Hanka Kupfernagel was able to respond to the Czech riders effort making it a  two-woman race for fourth place.

Vos rolled to the her third World Cup victory of 2010 with time to celebrate and enjoy the cheers. Behind van den Brand finished with team mate van Paassen allowing her to take second, while van den Brand's third place secured her overall top ranking for the seasons World Cup.

vSanne van Paassen's second place gave her the points to jump over Katie Comption on the World Cup podium putting the American champion in 4th.

Ten seconds later, Katerina Nash nipped Hanka Kupfernagel with the two riders finishing 4th and 5th in that order. American Amy Dombroski managed her best World Cup performance finishing in 9th.  Other American results: Meredith Miller in 20th, Maureen Bruno-Roy  23rd, and Christine Vardaros 40th.
