    2014 race program of Magnificent Marianne starts later than the last few years, at La Flèche Wallonne. Her main goal will be the WC in Spain, but on the way there she will surely pick up a few big wins. Long term goal is already the Olympics of 2016, where she will defend her title and with any luck get a MTB medal as well!

    So you are saying I should stop calling Marianne 'Ladymerckx' and start calling Eddy 'Dudevos' ?

    Vos is one of the most beautiful riders (of either gender) to watch on a bike.

    Exhibit A: the 2012 Olympic Road Race, which was far more interesting than the Men's edition, was about the poetry of power. Rain, some proper rivalry and a transcendent athleticism.

    Down the years, Vos has bossed the 'cross, strode the road and scaled the trails but she does all of it with the utmost style.

    Dunno that I agree with the "prettier than Cancellara" bit  :P    but I definitely agree with the rest.

    All Hail the great Marianne   :pray

    Magnificent Marianne gets her own race. The 7-dorpenomloop Aalburg will be renamed the Marianne Vos Classic. Vos has won the race 5 times so far.

    Vos, singing in the peloton during a climb.. They should have on-board camera's with microphones, would like to hear the reactions of other riders to that :)

    Great portrait there, by the way, different take on a familiar face.
