As Eric, my sportdirector said: LuckilyÂ you didnÂ´t say that there will be an haircut after every victory, then it will notÂ take long until youÂ´re bold! 😉
Yesterday we raced in Vodelee, two stages in one day with a timetrail in the morning and a roadrace in the afternoon.
I left Zingem at 05.45 and the rain was pouring down. I didnÂ´t start until 11.20 so I had time enough toÂ get awakeÂ and the rain was almost gone when it was time for me to start. I had a good feeling through the 11,3 km that we did and passed the finishline 24 seconds faster than Kirsten Wild that was 2nd.
In the afternoon we had a roadrace of 84km and already in the beginning they started attacking. A group off five riders got away (two from my team, Sofie Goor and Laura Werner). In the last premio montaÃ±a Sofie attacked from the groupÂ and went solo to the finish. Behind them Laure sprinted in to a 2nd place and just after them my group came and I sprinted in to a 5th place.
In the General Classification we had a nice podium with Sofie as 1th, me as 2nd and Laura as 3rd. What more can you ask for…??!!
Today itÂ´s an easy day and IÂ´m going to watch the last day of the Tour:)
