After a conspicuous absence during the start of year’s cyclocross calendar, Marianne Vos announced that she will begin her cross season by racing in round 4 of the World Cup series in Namur, Belgium on December 21.

The World Champion took a much needed respite following a lengthy "road" season, before traveling to South Africa, where she won the Momentum 947 Cycle Challenge in mid-November. She was also busy attending a national team training camp for two weeks as well.

Vos started her cyclocross season in Namur last year as well, where she placed second to Katie Compton (Trek Factory Racing).

She went on to place second at the World Cup in Heusden-Zolder and Roma – later winning the final World Cup in Nommay and the rainbow jersey at the World Championships in Hoogerheide.

Vos will also compete in the fifth World Cup in Heusden-Zolder on December 26, followed by the Superprestige Diegem on December 28, Bpost Bank Trofee series’ Azencross Loenhout on December 30, Internationale Centrumcross van Surhuisterveen on January 2 and the Dutch National Championships on January 10, according to the Cyclingquotes report.

The UCI Cyclo-cross World Championships will be held from January 29 to February 1 in Tabor, Czech Republic.
