    Background: Andre Dufraisse of France successfully defended his world cycle-cross cycling championship at Limoges today with a time of one hour, 11 minutes and 12 seconds. Dufraisse led the field of 49 entrants from eight countries in the event which permits contestants to carry their bicycles over rough spots on the cross-country course. Italy's Amerigo Severini was placed second - 25 seconds behind the winner and in third placed was Rolf Wolfsohl of Germany. Dufraisse has established himself without doubt the world's most remarkable cycle-cross rider: this was the fifth time he has won the world championship. France, with Dufraisse first, Brule fifth and Meunier eighth, were winners of the international team prize.
