Sanne Van Paassen smiles before the women’s start.
Nikoline Hansen also smiles. There wasn’t much cycling going on later, however.
Katerina Nash was on of the less obvious favourites of the race, her win in Roubaix clearly suggested that. However, she didn’t do that well, she finished fourth.
Marianne Vos dominated the field throughout the race, no one really came even close to her.
Belgian Champion Sanne Cant.
Hanka Kupfernagel’s strong performance wasn’t a big surprise, her ride improved constantly during the season, however, when I saw her riding right behind Vos, I was quite impressed.
Caroline Mani in her last lap, balancing in an icy corner.
I quite like this candid shot of Linda Van Rijen after the race.
