DH World Cup Round 1 Lourdes
So exciting! Swiss rider Camille Balanche wins the women’s race with a .624 margin over France’s Myriam Nicole. Amaury Pierron wins the men’s race in front the home crowd by .84 seconds.
World Champ Elisa Balsamo (Trek) continues her sprint dominance. Her 3rd win of the week! It was a large peloton closing in on the finish and the attacks came hot and heavy. But Trek and Jumbo-Visma were able to control the hectic final kilometers for their sprinters. Balsamo took care of business out kicking living legend Marianne Voss (Jumbo-Visma).
Another stress filled Spring Classic! Bergs, cobbles and tiny farm roads. Biniam Girmay (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert) made history for his country (Eritrean) winning the first ever Belgian Classic. He escaped with 4 others when Christophe Laporte (Jumbo-Visma) attacked the reduced peloton with about 24km to go. The break held on to about 30 seconds and it came down to 4 up sprint. Girmay launched early at about 250 taking them by surprise and was able to just hold off Laporte.
