Success in Le Samyn!
A great start for Health Mate Ladies Team in The Lotto Cycling Cup! Le Samyn was a fantastic day for our young Dutch talent Kylie Waterreus, who finished in 20th postition. She collected valuable points for the youth classement.
“The day started quite early for us.” – said Kylie after the tough stage of Le Samyn. “The official start was at 10:45 in Quaregnon. We had first a bigger loop and then shorter local rounds, with difficult cobblestone sections in the parkour. There was a big selection in the peloton already in the first half of the race. As getting closer to the finish line the tempo was very high. We could stay in front and work together with 4 of my teammates. It was great to rely on them and I had good legs at the end to do a strong sprint. Happy with the points I received for the U23 classification and I am very motivated to win the white jersey this year in Lotto Cycling Cup! Proud on the support of my teammates. I believe this will be a really successful season with Health Mate Ladies Team!”
