Helen Wyman (Kona) took her first victory of the 2015/16 cyclo-cross season in the Bpost Bank Trofee Flandriencross event in Belgium on Sunday.
British national champion Wyman prevailed in the extremely muddy conditions to beat Belgian World Cup leader Sanne Cant (Enertherm-BKCP), who suffered a badly-timed mechanical near the race's finale.
Nikki Harris (Telenet-Fidea) continued her strong season with third place, putting two British riders on the podium.
"Oh did I mention this?? My old friend sweet winning how I've missed you, shall we dance again next weekend?! Ha ha" Wyman joked on Twitter after the victory.
Wout van Aert won the men's race ahead of Sven Nys, with Kevin Pauwels in third.
The Bpost Bank Trofee Series continues with round four on December 5 in Essen, Belgium.
