April 26/15 18:21 pm - Dwars door de Westhoek results

Posted by Editoress on 04/26/15

Velocio-SRAM's Elise Delzenne has crossed the line alone to win UCI 1.1 Dwars door de Westhoek in Belgium today. Delzenne timed an attack perfectly with around 44 kilometres to race and was never caught by the bunch, winning with over 30 seconds to spare. In the sprint to the line, team mate Tiffany Cromwell sprinted to a third place.

Dwars door de Westhoek is raced around the Belgian town of Boezinge with a large lap including a few small climbs before finishing with four small town circuits. The race was aggressive with the early climbs splitting the bunch into several small groups although later coming back together to form a large main peloton. Delzenne attacked after the first sprint as the peloton crossed the finish line for the first intermediate sprint, and with four circuits to race. In a brave move with still 44 kilometres to race, the lead for Delzenne fluctuated between 30 seconds and 1 minute 10 seconds for the Velocio-SRAM rider. The other teams were unable to bring her lead back and Delzenne went to the line to take out the biggest win of her career, and her first big win since signing for Velocio-SRAM at the start of 2014.

Delzenne said, "I'm so happy to win and my first real victory! I didn't really expect that I would be winning today before the race. I just thought that at that moment that I attacked it was good timing because the race had been aggressive early and directly after the intermediate sprint I saw an opportunity. My team mates raced well in the first part of the race and I'm sure they were helping control it when I was away solo. I'm very pleased."

Team Director Sportif Ronny Lauke was very pleased with all of the efforts of the team. "The girls raced fantastic together today and it's a great result not only for Elise but for the team. Since taking a break following Track World Championships in February Elise has only just returned to racing with the team in the last ten days. She was instrumental in helping Barbara Guarischi sprint to a third place in Ronde van Gelderland last weekend and after her win today it's obvious she is in strong early form.
