UCIWWT Boels Ladies Tour

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 🙂

Maciej Bodnar attacked at an earlier stage, believed he could win and tried to ride away from the peloton. He didn’t make it. Annemiek van Vleuten attacked too early up Col d’Izoard but she managed to win.

No guts no glory as Team Joker Icopal say.

Today in Marseille they both won!

12,7km ITT today at the Giro Rosa. Looked flat on the stage profile according to the Italians but in real it included 2 really steep climbs with gradients up to 30%. Many rode roadbikes with TTbars, and some with disc wheels. Annemiek van Vleuten went full on TTsetup. Watch the highlights here:

Anna van der Breggen digged so deep so she didn’t know what to do after the finishline. but van Vleuten won with 41(!) seconds. I’m happy as she:
