British cyclo-cross national champion Nikki Harris (Telenet-Fidea) won a muddy edition of the Superprestige Hamme-Zogge in Belgium on Sunday.
Having enjoyed a string of podium placings over the past couple of weeks on the European cyclo-cross scene, Harris fought her way to the top step after beating Sanne Cant (Enertherm-BKCP) and team-mate Sophie de Boer.
Harris had come second in the Superprestige Ruddervoorde behind Helen Wyman two weeks previously. Newly-crowned European champion Wyman did not take part in Hamme-Zogge.
Harris's journey to Hamme-Zogge hadn't gone smoothly after the exhuast fell off her car.
"The sound coming from my little blue Peugeot today at the race wasn't intentional... the exhaust fell off," she later admitted via Twitter.
Niels Albert (BKCP-Powerplus) won the men's race ahead of Sven Nys (Crelan KDL) and Philipp Walsleben (BKCP-Powerplus).
