10th place for Laura in Zwevezele!
Today 3 girls went to Zwevezele to conquer wind and cold.
In lap two Tara Gins attacked. A few moments later Laura Vainionpää and ex-national champion Kaat Hannes closed the gap. The three of them worked well together.
A few laps later Alana Castrique (Lotto) could close the gap solo. With now four riders in the front they took an advantage of max 2min to the first peloton of only 13 riders.
After 70k the four were caught back. Tara had to drop out of this first group.
Laura was still, after a long day in the breakaway, able to sprint to a 10th place!
Results (85 participants):
10th Laura Vainionpää
22th Chloë Turblin
25th Tara Gins
