Helen Wyman gave Great Britain a bronze medal in the 2014 cyclo-cross World Championships in Hoogerheide, Netherlands, on Saturday.
The British national champion finished in third spot behind Dutchwoman Marianne Vos, who successfully defended her world title in front of a home crowd.
Italian Eva Lechner placed second with Nikki Harris giving Britain two riders in the top five in fifth.
It was Vos's title to lose, and she put in a typically dominant ride from the gun - her rivals simply couldn't match her turn of speed and she finished over a minute clear of Lechner.
Belgium on top in junior men's race
Earlier in the day Belgium obliterated the competition by occupying the top three places in the junior men's race. Thijs Aerts, Yannick Peeters and Jelle Schuermans took a 1-2-3, with Great Britain's Thomas Craig finishing in a creditable 18th spot.

His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success.

He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
