You know when you race on home soil and everyone is there cheering for you. Then when riding safe but fast on technical Proloque and still take the win.
You know when you can sprint better than the others so you just pass and celebrate a bit before the line while everyone is chasing you?
You know when racing against the fastest time trialcyclists in the world but you decided to win the World Championships this year and need the great feeling?
You know when you missed the last sprint but knew you got it this time?
You know when you’re the favorite, leading the World Tour, but still go in the breakaway with the GC leader just because you know it’s your day?
Interesting racing, but missing the live stream this years Boels Ladies Tour. UCI haven’t shared today’s video yet so just a picture of the finish. 6th and last stage tomorrow. Annemiek van Vleuten is leading ahead of Anna van der Breggen and that seems pretty set but it’s a long hilly stage tomorrow. Hoping for van Vleuten to take the overall, but can Niewiadoma win tomorrow, find the spring shape again 🙂
One of the worlds best sprinter, Kirsten Wild with help from the best national team seen in Women’s World Championships, The Netherlands got 2nd spot.
They chased down the breakaway, set up a pace with Annemiek van Vleuten that made it hard for many to keep up with and they delivered Wild to just finish it.
But it’s easy to go too hard, too early and from nowhere the 20 year Amalie Dideriksen passed even without electronic gears and aero helmet. Was awesome too see and I recommend everyone to watch the replay and see how a bikerace on a boring track without spectators should be won.
Congratulations Amalie Dideriksen, Denmark and Boels-Dolmans!
