Fellow Briton, Nikki Harris, finished in second place at 27 seconds behind – as Wyman pulled away on the opening lap. Belgian champion Sanne Cant out sprinted Gabby Durrin for third place at 21 seconds behind. Had it not been for Cant’s placing, the British would have swept the podium.
Wyman finished a disappointing 11th place in yesterday’s World Cup race in Tabor – 1:19 off the pace of winner and new World Cup leader Katie Compton.
"In the Czech Republic on Saturday I had a really bad day," said Wyman. "On that parcours and in those circumstances you cannot hide it.
"Today the feeling was much better for me on a course with a lot of variety. Hopefully I can repeat that performance this coming Friday at the Koppenbergcross, my Belgian home. However, I expect that Nikki will make it hard for me."
