Today, the first big race of the Belgian season, the Brico Cross in Eeklo. A new race, with dry and fast conditions but not the easiest race. A few steep climbs and a sand stroke made the race more difficult then it seemed.
Ellen Van Loy takes the lead early in the race. Cant, Kaptheijns, De Boer and Verdonschot are on her tale. As the race continues, a trio distance themselves in the head of the race. Van Loy, Cant and Kaptheijns.
Then Cant accelerates, breaking up the lead group. Van Loy is chasing in 2nd place. Cant slowly builds the lead and finishes solo. Van Loy stay in 2nd postion untill the finish. Kaptheijns takes 3th place.
Great start of the Season for Cant. She seems to be in great form already.
