First WorldTour race Driedaagse De Panne!
Today was the first WorldTour race for the team Driedaagse Brugge – De Panne, on the highest level in women’s cycling.
It ended up to be an unlucky and hard day for the team with a lot of crashes.
Laura Vainionpää crashed two times and needed stitches in her arm. She also had a minor concussion.
Kathrin Schweinberger fought her way into the front of the peloton all day! After being out of competition in a while and being so young (only 21) this is already a major accomplishment!
Belgian champion Jolien D’hoore won the race.
84th Kathrin Schweinberger
We want to thank Hotel Donny for a great stay at De Panne!
