UCI Cyclocross World Cup Champion, Saane Van Paassen, celebrates as the disinterested podium girl gives a polite golf clap while staring into the distance and thinking about what she's doing later that night and the overweight local dignitary who, though more enthusiastic in his applause for Van Paassen, is actually checking out the podium girl and wondering if she'll dig his vintage, '86 Citroen.
It should be noted that the above text is a single sentence. Quite impressive...I know! It should also be noted that Saane Van Paassen is the only professional female cyclocross racer ever to be featured on this blog...and now she is the World Champion. (Though if American, Katie Compton hadn't skipped two WC races, she would have won the overall title easily) You don't have to drink the Kool-Aid, but you can't deny the Juice.
