UCIWWT Ronde van Vlaanderen

Last time I blogged about a World Tour race it ended the same way. Last year it was Boels-Dolmans who dominated the Women World Tour but not this year, seems like many more riders are up for the win and Team Sunweb is the team to beat:

  1. Coryn Rivera – Team Sunweb
  2. Gracie Elvin – Orica-Scott
  3. Chantal Blaak – Boels-Domans
  4. Annemiek Van Vleuten – Orica-Scott

 

Yesterdays sunny Ronde van Vlaanderen

Some people get better weather than others, some ride faster than others. Not jealous, just want to ride fast in better weather 😉

Highlights from the womens race yesterday with some beautiful views of the ”Swedish” town Zingem:

The Belgians can cheer so much for a Swede. Than we can do better. We need a better fan culture in this country.

Emma Johansson ended 13th. Great ride by Annemiek van Vleuten, I like offensive riders 🙂

BMC filmed inside the peloton and breakaway of the men’s race:

And here is the last 30km of the men’s race. which I have to watch as we followed the last part of the race on the radio in a car towards the airport yesterday.

Happy that my second favorite won 🙂
