I get the riding from Pieters and Vollering, but I don't understand why VdBB didn't take the front through the final kilometer.Gap going back up again now. The impetus is gone once Reusser gets back on, but then she's isolated so the other Alé riders chase on and take up the pacing again. Great perseverence from Bastianelli and Tomasi, but they really look like they're on their last legs. Dani, rightly, questioning why exactly Niewiadoma is still working... which is when she attacks, and she briefly opens up a gap on CVDBB, but Vos is right there on the wheel. The Cannibal won't roll through though because she knows she can outsprint Kasia and Kasia has to go on the final climb, so Chantal gets back on. Vos will fancy herself in a 400m climb against Kasia and will fancy herself in a sprint with Chantal.
As a result everybody knows Niewiadoma has to attack on the final climb so make her lead out on to it. Cat and mouse, cat and mouse. At 500m Kasia is off, and again Chantal struggles to hold on, but Kasia can't get rid of Marianne and they return to cat and mouse again. Vos opens up the sprint and Marianne Vos is Marianne Vos. Away she goes and she gets a time gap. Niewiadoma takes 2nd, and for some reason Pieters and Vollering were accelerating on the back but looks like they've opened up time on Marlen Reusser, who is several seconds behind. Marty and Dani perplexed by SD Worx.

It will be almost impossible for Reusser to win, unless we'll se more crashes, which there will be no need for.You'd say van Dijk is the big danger for them, she hung around that chase group not contributing for quite a lot of today. Reusser had to go very deep to try to manage the bunch today, and as she lacks a sprint weapon and would have to try to escape solo I can't see her managing to shed the SD Worx juggernaut.
You'd say anybody other than van Dijk, they'll just staple Vollering to their back wheel and they either get pulled back or they drag Demi to victory.It will be almost impossible for Reusser to win, unless we'll se more crashes, which there will be no need for.
The hills tomorrow don't seem to be hard enough for anyone to put Blaak under major pressure, but SD Worx did lose both Majerus and Cecchini yesterday, so they might not be able to close down every attack. But that is obviously not required either, when they they don't really have to focus anyone other than Van Dijk.
Yes, even if that rider is Vos, they'll be alright.You'd say anybody other than van Dijk, they'll just staple Vollering to their back wheel and they either get pulled back or they drag Demi to victory.
Because of the effects of yesterday's crashes and some more crashes today.Why so many DNFs?
