“I felt I had something left. I was actually waiting for one of my teammates to go, but I felt it was now or never. So I gambled on it. If it didn’t work out, it was a nice opportunity for one of my teammates to try. But I immediately made a gap. “Now all I have to do is go downhill and I’ll get there,” I thought. I gave it all, but it was very difficult. When I heard I only had 14 seconds, I knew I had to squeeze everything out of it to keep it to the finish. I went full gas.”
No one caught up with them and Vollering completed her hat trick. Wins in three stages in as many days. “This is something I can cross off my bucket list. There were only four of us here, but four very strong climbers. This race was made for us with all those climbs. If I win here, it is thanks to my teammates. It is very cool to win this race for the first time ever. It gives a lot of confidence for the Tour de France,” she concluded.
Demi Vollering not only won the general classification but also the points classification. Niamh Fisher-Black won the youth classification and Team SD Worx was also the best in the team ranking. Talk about a successful weekend.
