Live: 2024 Trofee Maarten Wynants

Trofee Maarten Wynants

The Trofee Maarten Wynants is a prestigious women’s cycling race held each year in Helchteren, Belgium. It is named in honour of Maarten Wynants, a celebrated Belgian cyclist, and aims to promote women’s participation in the sport. This event is a key part of the Lotto Cycling Cup, drawing skilled cyclists from across the world who come to test their mettle on its demanding course.

The race usually takes place in the spring and features a mix of flat sections and gentle hills, presenting both tactical challenges and a test of endurance for the participants. Riders must tackle multiple laps of a circuit, each one packed with tight turns and stretches exposed to the wind, which adds complexity to the race strategy.

Chiara Consonni triumphed at the 2023 edition of the Trofee Maarten Wynants, marking her first victory of the season with the UAE Team ADQ. The final moments of the race were dramatic, with rain starting to fall during the last lap leading to a crash in the final curve, which Consonni skillfully avoided. Her teammates, Anna Trevisi and Laura Tomasi, played crucial roles in this victory, finishing seventh and tenth respectively, and helping to keep the race under control which set Consonni up for the sprint finish.
