The Lotte Kopecky Fan Thread

Today she became the second Belgian winner of the Ronde van Vlaanderen, after winning the Strade Bianche earlier this year. She clearly deserves her own thread. Her move to SD Worx was a good one, and at the age of twenty-six she's turned into a winner. Any more fans?
I like her. I got to know her on the track, before I began focusing more on women's road cycling.

What I enjoy most about her is that despite the fact that she's a pretty good sprinter, she's in no way one-dimensional, cause she's not afraid of attacking plus she's pretty good on shorter climbs and on cobbles. This year she's obviously been helped by being part of the strongest team, but she's also spend energy on solo attacks in both Omloop (where she eventually died) and in Strade (where she was brought back initially, but still managed to hold onto Van Vleuten's wheel in Siena).

She's got 18 wins in her career, 10 of which have come in the last 13 months. She's been helped by her move away from Lotto, but she's definitely also stepped up herself and has deservingly replaced her now former track partner Jolien D'hoore as the Belgian no. 1.
