Heusden - Race Report

Today's race was in Heusden, a municipality located in the Belgian province of East Flanders.

It was another Dames Elite Race, with a large field donated by the big teams. Having watched videos of the last 3 years races, it seemed pretty clear that the group would stay together and the pace would be high.

I decided early on that rather than sit in and hope for a result, I might as well try for a break and see if we could get lucky!

Well, the 1st one didn't work, so why not launch another!

And again we were pulled back by the group.

I decided for 1 last effort….

….and agin was pulled back by the field. By this time I'd pretty much used all I had, but was able to hold on to the peloton and rolling with the main group. Another fun race here in Belgium!
