Loes Gunnewijk Nederland Bloeit rode away from the lead group of thirteen in the last kilometre that also included Cervélo TestTeam riders Charlotte Becker (GER) in fourth, Iris Slappendel (NED) in tenth and Sarah Düster (GER) in twelfth.

Cervélo Sports Directeur Egon van Kessel on the race...
“Halfway through the race, in the cobblestone section, we launched a good attack and that tactic resulted in a break of 30 riders with six of our own riders in the break.” 

“There was one team with six riders and two teams with four, but what really happened was our team had to do a lot of the work, and the Leontien team had to do a lot of work. Then there was another attack with seven riders with two of ours in the break and then, there was another four rider break.” 

“Finally they all came together with eleven riders in the front including three of our girls Charlotte, Iris and Sarah. They tried to escape in the last 10 kilometers with several attacks but the Gauss girls always chased them back and at the end we lost the race and Loes Gunnewijk from Nederland Bloeit won the race. The team that didn’t do so much work won the race – it can happen.”
