Fredheim deserves more praise after today. Ridiculously impressive performance, 19 years old.
Wanna see some echelons, guess it doesn't happen a lot in woman racing?We'll see if the women's race will just as wind/rain affected as the men's was yesterday.
Elisa Balsamo is the defending champion after she beat Lorena Wiebes, who had to ride the final with a broken spoke after a crash. Together with Charlotte Kool they make up a trio of hot favourites this time around, but there are also quite a few other names who can potentially fight for the podium here, depending on how the race unfolds.
But the strongest riders are in front. UAE can't close it and now Consonni trying to bridge, she just missed the first group.Strong group, but it might be hard for them to keep the bigger group behind for 50 km.
What are these random "leader jerseys(?)". Wiebes in red. The one from Canyon in blue, while teammate Bossuyt in normal team jersey. Do they have some sort of classification with all the WT races or something?
Make sure you watch the Lorena Wiebes interview on eurosport
Poor dude, he just wanted to ride with them.
