Catalina, Amelia, Emily, Britt, Maud, Mylène and Rozemarijn lined up for Le Samyn, a race deemed little Paris-Roubaix because of the many cobbles. It was a short race and therefore it was full on straight from the start.
Straight from the start everyone was racing and there were many crashes. Every one of the team was involved, some a bit more than others. Emily had a flat tire in the beginning. We lost the race there. Maud crashed, then Catalina was involved in a crash. Amelia just missed the first group. Some riders didn’t stand a chance today and couldn’t show themselves. The riders who were in the race showed good signs. It was a day filled with bad luck but you can’t help that, unfortunately.
The next race is next week with the Healthy Ageing Tour, a race you can watch live too! There is a criterium on Wednesday on the TT circuit, a time trial on Thursday and a demanding lap on the VAM-berg like the Dutch national championships on Friday. New rounds, new chances!
