Sanne Cant set an unprecedent record on Saturday when she claimed the Belgian National Cyclocross Championship title for the 15th consecutive year. In a muddy and battled race, the Crelan-Corendon rider outsmarted Laura Verdonschot (De Ceuster – Bonache) in a final sprint in Meulebeke.

Her teammate Marion Norbert Riberolle completed the podium while FENIX-Deceuninck’s Marthe Truyen and Julie De Wilde crossed the finish line in 10th and 15th positions, respectively.

In an interview with Belgian media Sporza, Cant hinted that she is considering retiring after next year’s season. “I’m probably at the start of my last Belgian Championship. So, I’m really going to enjoy it. I will certainly take the time to think back on all the wonderful things, but I would like to win that 15th. That’s the intention, otherwise I wouldn’t have started today. I’m going to do everything I can.”

The Belgian National Cyclocross Championship Elite women category was introduced in 2001 and has been held yearly since. Cant, who rides with FENIX-Deceuninck during the road season, has won 15 of the 24 editions.
