Saturday and Ronde van Het Nieuwsblad was ok. I had great legs and my whole team raced offensive. Already from the start we had control over the race. Over the first twoÂ hills “Kluisberg” and “Cote de Trieu”Â we all sat in the front and Petra pulled the speed up a bit. The peloton broke halfway in the race and coming into my favouriteÂ hill “Molenberg”Â I attacked. Got away with Cantele and Visser. From behind they were chasing hard and just before we entered the cobblesection “Paddestraat” they were back. Then I attacked again. With everythingÂ on a long line IÂ felt like I had theÂ race in my hand. Then it happened, my pedalÂ came off!! And suddenly the race was over for me…
A littlebit frustrated to have to finishÂ the race with such good legs in the second group. SpeciallyÂ when itÂ´s becauseÂ of something that was not my fault.
Happy though about my team and how strong we were riding together. Heidi have done a good work preparing us for thisÂ seasone.Â
Ludevine was the best from RedSun Cycling TeamÂ on a 9th place.
Yesterday I had to get some frustration out. And as always Martin had a plan…Â some hours on the Ronde van Vlaanderen course behinde the car did good for my head 😉
