Christine Majerus was fit enough to cross today and she did that in Pétange (Luxembourg). The rider of the Boels-Dolmans Cycling Team finished second behind the Dutch winner Thalita de Jong.
"For today this result is the best I could do. Thalita was stronger. She made it a fast start, which I couldn't follow. I raced in my own tempo, which wasn't easy because there was no hope to get to the front and there was no danger from behind. I didn't want to much risk because the lap was dangerous. It was a good entry again and I just hope I can quickly get back to the level I had before Namur."
