Retired mountain biker Wloszczowska wins Poland Gravel World Series round

Maja Wloszczowska (Rondo.cc) may have last year retired from her career as a professional mountain bike rider but the 2010 cross-country World Champion on the weekend took a different type of race victory on rough terrain, delivering a dominant performance at the fourth round of the UCI Gravel World Series in Poland.

In the Polish round of the new series held in Świeradów-Zdrój, the Gravel Adventure, Wloszczowska delivered a time of 3:42:37 on the 98km course which included a section of single-track. That put the two-time Olympic silver medallist more than 20 minutes ahead of her nearest rivals in the women’s category, German rider Svenja Betz (IBCT). In third it was Dutch rider Tessa Neefjes (Giant Liv Benelux Offroad Team), who earlier this month won the third round in Millau, France.
