Pavla Havlikova’s pre-race concentration.
Daphny Van Den Brand (2) leads the charge after the start with Katherine Compton (8) and Pavla Havlikova (35) following closely.
By the end of the first lap, Compton (8) was already in the front and only Van Den Brand (2) was able keep up with her.
Linda Van Rijen approaches the depo area during her second lap.
Compton left the others way behind from the third lap and was racing at her own pace.

Caroline Mani (11) clearly suffered from the apparent heat and tried everything to enhance ventilation.
Daphny Van Den Brand held on to his second place.
Annoyingly, I hadn’t managed to count the number of laps properly so I was surprised when the announcer shouted “Last lap” and I started my mad dash towards the finish area but I didn’t make it so I had to make do with some pre-finish photos.
This one came out quite nicely.
Watch his hand 🙂
