"The four best ladies at the moment are so good that they actually form a different competition" - Marie Schreiber focuses on her goal at U23 World Championships in Tábor

Marie Schreiber is having a great cyclo-cross winter. After the World Cup race won by Puck Pieterse in Hulst, where she ultimately finished eighth, the Luxembourgish lady from SD Worx took the time to have a chat with In de Leiderstrui after she finished the race!

Fourth in Dublin, second in Flamanville, sixth in Diegem: Schreiber is doing very well, especially in rounds of the World Cup, which makes her the second place in the U23 ranking of the regularity ranking. "The four best ladies at the moment are so good that they actually form a different competition. They are really at a different level," she first praises what Fem van Empel, Puck Pieterse, Ceylin del Carmen Alvarado and Lucinda Brand have shown.

"I think it's still out of my reach for this season to join them," she continues. "The goal is of course to get one step closer every year. But they are so far ahead it at the moment that I try to focus completely on myself. And of course the races with the U23 ladies."

At the Cyclo-Cross World Championships in Tabór, Schreiber will make a bid for the U23 world title. This race looks set to be an extremely exciting one. Schreiber also agrees. "I don't necessarily see myself as the absolute favorite to win the world title. In my opinion, there are four ladies with good credentials: Leonie Bentveld, Zoe Bäckstedt, Kristýna Zemanová and me. We're all at about the same level. That will probably make for a great battle at the World Cup."
