Helen Wyman (Kona-FSA) won the GP Wetzilkon cyclo-cross race in Switzerland on Sunday, December 13.
The reigning British cyclo-cross national champion showed she's in top form, beating second-placed Lucie Chainel-Lefevre (France) by 39 seconds. Switzerland's Katrin Leumann (Goldwurst-Power Sputnik) was third, one minute and 22 seconds adrift of Wyman.
It's Wyman's fourth win of the season so far, having won last weekend's Giro d'Italia Cyclo-Cross in Italy.
The men's event was won by Frenchman Steve Chainel (Bbox Bouygues Telecom).
Wyman is based in Belgium, and has been contesting the season-long UCI cyclo-cross World Cup, where she has already placed in a clutch of top tens giving her ninth in the series overall so far.
With two rounds this month in Belgium, Wyman is hoping to maintain her form to gain some podium spots to climb up the World Cup standings.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. 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. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
