The first national cyclo-cross competition of the season was a tooth and nail fight between Sanne van Paassen and Daphny van den Brand. Van Paassen was finally beaten by her teammate at the last bend.
She owes this good condition to her move before the summer from Wageningen back to Vlieden, where her boyfriend and parents live. 'That has brought me so much repose.'
Not only does she have aspirations to win, Van Paassen has no lack of discipline or intelligence either. This fourth year student has already begun on her Masters study. 'Nothing unusual.'
Van Paassen, cycling for team ZZPR.nl, currently gets free haircuts as well. 'I recently have a personal sponsor: Hairsalon BrainWash.' /YdH
