Today we saw a very strong Christine Majerus who attacked from a first group 20 km before the finishline. She took almost a minute however was caught back with 4 kilometers to go. She was awarded with the most combatitive rider price of stage 3.
DS Danny Stam reflects on the race. "We saw a great race today. The girls were extremely strong. We were with 5 riders in the first group when Christine took off. Wauw, she was strong. We tried to do our best defending her lead. With another 4 km to go she was eventually caught. From then on Amy, Anna, Jolien and Christine once more tried to force another split. Without success. In the sprint we couldnt play a role anymore. The performance our team showed today makes me proud and is promissing for the classics that lay ahead."
