Anna van der Breggen is grateful to her teammates for the victory on the wall of Huy. She looks back: “It was a very tough race. Today I am very grateful to my team, because they did most of the work. In the final phase I felt the pressure as a result in the duel with Vollering to win. . “
Another 174 km – Back to the men again. There is now a leading group of four riders. Mauri Vansevenant (Deceuninck-Quick Step), Aaron van Poucke (Sport Vlaanderen-Baloise), Mathijs Paasschens (WB Bingoal) and Marlon Gaillard (Total Direct Energie) fled early in the race. The three Belgians and 24-year-old Dutchman Paasschens have built up a lead of 4’35 on the peloton.
It is the sixth time in a row that Van der Breggen has won the Belgian cycling classic. She definitely did not receive it as a gift, because fellow countryman Vollering made it very difficult for Van der Breggen towards the finish. Vollering eventually crosses the finish line third. The Danish Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig comes in third.
FINISH – Van der Breggen is still the strongest and wins the Walloon Arrow!
Another 300 m – Van der Breggen is not really getting away yet and is even in second position. Vollering takes over from her. The world champion does not give up. Now it is a matter of timing. Uttrup Ludwig is also participating.
Another 500 m – Van der Breggen takes control and leads the way himself.
Another 2 km – The road starts to rise and that means that the last kilometer is towards the wall of Huy.
Another 3 km – The pace is high in the leading group, but for the time being the group of about 20 riders will stay together. The favorites: Van der Breggen, Vos, Moolman-Pasio, Longo Borghini, Deignan, Niewiadoma, Lippert and Uttrup Ludwig.
Another 8 km – Boels-Dolmans, Van der Breggen’s team leads with Amy Pieters. In this way the team tries to execute the tactical plan perfectly. The speed is so high that attacks are impossible. For example, Van der Breggen will be taken to the Wall in a seat
Another 9 km – There are still about twenty riders in the leading group.
Another 11 km – In the meantime, more and more riders are quitting. Vos was also just in third position, but now lets himself down a bit. She doesn’t seem to have her very best legs.
Another 13 km – The peloton is still together with of course Van der Breggen and her teammates from Boels Dolmans are there. The big question is whether someone can keep the Dutch from her sixth victory.
