20 Races In And Wyman Is Just Getting Started
Wyman is on a tear this year. She’s topping podiums, doubling down on wins and in some cases, quadrupling — she recently battled it out with the legend Katie Compton to take her 4th Koppenberg win (more on that here from CX Magazine).
Now as she heads home for a break after the European Championships and a few more wins, she has had time to reflect on her first block of racing and what’s up next for the second phase of the season.
Check out her win in Elorrio Spain below!
“It’s been really good for body and mind to spend some time at home after 9 weeks away with an intense racing block of 19 races. Race 20 was my first ever race in Spain, and I’m really happy to have taken the win. Some very strong Spanish riders who perform well at World Cups, as well as two of the best young Dutch riders made it a good race, but I’m happy that in the mud I was able come out on top. Next up for me a trip to Denmark for the new World Cup, followed by Germany and Belgium. An action packed few weeks await.”

BEYOND THE BIKE:
More than anything Wyman is dedicated to being a role model for younger cyclists, especially women. With her seat on the UCI-commission for cyclocross she has played a huge role in the fight for equal rights and pay between men and women in cyclocross.
“When people look back on my career, I hope they remember me as a good cyclist. But first of all I want to be remembered as someone who meant something to the sport.” – Helen Wyman
