Dwars door Vlaanderen Women
Once the hilly terrain hit 7 super strong riders would go clear and maintain 20 seconds over the peloton. With 5KM to go Ellen van Dijk (NED) would ride away from the small group and win solo.
Dwars door Vlaanderen
53KM To Go + Tainenberg + Stybar (CZE) = Selection. The race really heated up on the Tainenberg. The riders looked miserable in the rainy cold conditions. For those like myself (armchair bike racer) the crummy weather only serves to illuminate my interest. Some big names like Van Avermaet (BEL), Vanmarke (BEL), Degenkolb (GER), Benoot (BEL), Boasson Hagen (NOR) and notably Valverde (SPA) rounding out the selection. Valverde was always in good position and once again confirms his all around skill set. LottoNL-Jumbo worked super hard to bring the group back. Their grimacing faces said it all. Just as they made the capture on the Knokteberg, Benoot lifted the pace with Van Avermaet on the wheel and they would go clear. After being reeled back in Vanmarke attacked on a cobbled section. While Lampaert (BEL) jumped on the wheel early, Teunissen (NED), Boasson Hagen, and Pedersen (DEN) all came across. From here attack after attack came within the winning break but the defending champ Lampaert attacked and easily rode away with it. Quick-Step surely has the strongest team on paper ahead of the big show this weekend. Notable: Valverde’s knack for being at the front. But I guess we shouldn’t be surprised. Wout Van Eart did not make the selection. Sagan and Gilbert opted for hot chocolate and a warm dry couch rather then race. Keeping the powder dry?
