More strong performances in windy time trial Healthy Ageing Tour
Another day, another top 10 finish for Grant Thornton-Krush Bikes-Tunap Sports. Thanks to her brilliant tenth place in the time trial, Daniek Hengeveld is now up to second place in the young riders classification.
It surely was a hectic day. The start of the 14,4 km time trial was postponed a few times due to the stormy conditions. The decision was also made to have the race ridden on road bikes. The organisation showed their adaptability today, for which they deserve credit.
The team also deserves compliments for their adaptability and performances. In the end, it was once again Daniek Hengeveld who came away with the best result. Her Krush bike led her to 10th place, only 1’05” behind winneer Ellen van Dijk. “It once again went really well today. I am very happy with this tenth place!” Thanks to her brilliant performance, Hengeveld currently sits in 10th overall in the GC.
The third and final stage will consist of 36 ascents of the VAM-Berg. “That will be a very difficult stage. We are all going to give it everything we have and then we will see where we end up.”
