Antonneau Podiums at Valkenburg World Cup



While Kaitlin Antonneau is no stranger to podium finishes, having taken wins already this year stateside at the C1 event at theĀ Ellison Park Cyclocross Festival event as well as a win in last week’s CXC Trek Cup, the distance between the top steps of a U.S. event and a Cyclocross World Cup are often barriers that trip up Americans. Call it a 10% difference in the competition at the top of the World, 10% more effort, skill and drive required.

On Sunday, the Cannondale p/b rider made the step up to a World Cup podium, finishing second in the technically demanding Valkenburg World Cup, a significant milestone for an American racer.

“It’s a huge accomplishment for any rider to get on the podium but to see Kaitie make this jump knowing how hard she’s worked is really amazing,” explained Cannondale p/b team owner and director, Stu Thorne.

The podium represents another key success from the team, now in its tenth year.
