Chantal van den Broek-Blaak ensured a Dutch double victory in the Tour of Flanders for the women. Where Mathieu van der Poel won in the men, she was able to complete the race solo after good team play by Boels-Dolmans.

While the men were already approaching their final of the Tour of Flanders, the women started their campaign in the afternoon Flanders’ Most Beautiful. After a period of attacks, a leading group of six women was able to form: Teuntje Beekhuis, Gloria Rodriguez, Alice Sharpe, Mieke Kröger, Ariadna Trias, Heidi Franz and Emily Newsom. After a flat tire, however, Sharpe had to let the others drive.

For a long time it remained calm in the peloton, until the slopes came up. At that moment, Lisa Brennauer and Alison Jackson chose the hare path, even before the course really broke loose. The two did not last very long, after which they had to wait until the A-favorites started to stir for the victory. On the Valkenberg, all the big names were still close together: including Annemiek van Vleuten and Anna van der Breggen.

Van der Breggen and Van Vleuten do not work together

The Taaienberg eventually formed the stage for the regrouping, after which we got two new leaders with Alena Amialiusik and Riejanne Markus. For a short while they continued to ride for the chasing group, where Van der Breggen set the pace. Their story was over on the Hotond, after which Van Vleuten himself went on the attack. There was some hesitation, after which Van der Breggen had to go after it himself.

The world champion rode to the wheel of the European champion, after which it seemed as if we were going to see an exciting battle here too. However, Van der Breggen refused to cooperate with her compatriot, so that the entire chasing group could also return. From that group riders smoke their chance and they start the attack.

Van den Broek-Blaak benefits from team play

Van den Broek-Blaak seized that moment from the team of Van der Breggen, Boels-Dolmans. On the Oude Kwaremont she made a small gap with the other riders. On the Paterberg she managed to keep her lead intact, allowing her to go into the last kilometers solo.

Van Vleuten hoped to escape, but the Boels team immediately jumped on its wheel. This played into the hands of the lonely escape star in the front. After that Grace Brown tried again, but she was also perfectly held in hand by the teammates of Van den Broek-Blaak. Amy Pieters stayed on the wheel of the Mitchelton rider.

In the last kilometers, the Dutch never had any more problems. With the flat run-up to the finish line, she only managed to extend her lead. With more than a minute ahead, she was able to cross the line jubilantly. In the sprint of the chasing group, Pieters was able to complete the party for her team by setting the best sprint with force majeure. Lotte Kopecky arrived late and had to settle for third place.
