What a weekend!
Today our cyclists did a great job!
Lars had a top 10in GC to defend in Tour de Namur, another day of tough racing was ahead! With bad luck 15K before the finishline and having puncture his top 10place almost disappeared. But on the last climb he succeeded to get back in the lead of the race (30man) by closing a 1’gap on this climb.
This 67kg rider need a 5’output of 400watt (5,97watt/kg) to come back to the peloton. He succeeded and could maintain his spot in front to take 8th in GC!
His resume this season is looking brilliant. Next A-race is Tour de Moselle (France), in between Flanders Tomorrow Tour and 2Elite National races in France are on the program. Now: recovery!
In Thieusies Ronald has one of his strongest days this season and can get into the right breakaway, he achieves a massive result by finishing 2nd! Progressing very strongly the last 2seasons we can see him winning and taking more podiums upcoming months and years.
In Zedelgem it was Guillaume who tried to break away, but the peloton didn’t let go and he saved his legs for the sprint to finish off 7th in the end!
Today was also loaded with triathlon!
In Ironman Maastricht, the closest Ironman to Belgian borders, Bart, Wim and Frederick were at the starting line!
Bart and Wim have already got a bigger career in IMraces. Frederick was at the start of his very first! A perfect preparation for all 3 athletes! Only Wim couldn’t run his long runs, which he feared during the IM. But with a good pacing, patience and perseverance all athletes reached the finishline nicely!
Bart was the first crossing that line in AG50 and takes 10th AG position! A strong result that confirms his current shape!
Frederick had a progressive race and gained overall places during the whole race! Wim from his side feared the marathon a bit and he took it easier. With the support of his support crew he made a very nice finish with some show dance at the finishline!
In Jabbeke 111 our athletes were also present! With Jeffrey 24th in a dense field he has a strong start of his specific Konaprep!
He was followed by U23 athlete Arno and Stijn, who is in preparation for IM Italy! Toon from his side had some digesting problems, and spend a lot of time in T2 but took the chance to finish off the race in preparation to Ironlakes triathlon!
Good performances also in Triathlon Eupen, where masters Dean and Yves found a tough course which made the athletes progress in descents and riding uphill! Yves showed his running capabilities once again by taking the 3rd AG running time and move up towards 12th at the finishline!
