This will be a short report – I’ve got a four hour drive ahead of me, so I’ll keep this brief, plus the organisers are shooting ugly looks towards me for staying this late.
It was a great day, great races. It was good to see Katie Compton being so dominant, maybe she’ll be able to contest Marianne Vos this year? Nikki Harris’ second place was also very cool, she rode really well today.
As ever, the first half of the elite men’s race gave us the hope of a different ending, only for it to be won by Sven Nys. Francis Mourey’s third place was great, it shook things up a bit, not just the usual suspects on the podium.
All right, I’m off to Gieten, tune in tomorrow for photos and report.
