A day after Dendermonde, Lucinda Brand was victorious again, this time at Heusden-Zolder. The world champion was almost a complete cross on the road with compatriot Wim van Impel, but was unable to use her fast legs in the final race.
On the fast and dry track at Zolder, Lucinda Brand didn’t allow herself to stray off the front row, but it needed more than two laps to reward her patience.
The tempo acceleration was answered only by Wim van Impel. Denis’ teammate Betsima initially had to be careful, but the return of Betsima and his teammates was too much.
Young and bright Van Impel stood on her seat at the world champion’s wheel and showed not a single drop of decay.
In the last round, Brand pressed down on her surprise opponent and at the last hurdle the fast daring guy made a mistake.
She went too far into a corner and lost the rear wheel to Brand, who flew towards her twelfth win of the season.
It also enhances its lead in ranking over its competitors. Sunny Kant, still hoping for 7 yesterday, did not appear in the piece.

Brand: “This has powers of cost”
Lucinda Brand, 32, had to wipe her toes to win again. “He was a sprint sprinter in the lap,” she panted.
“Wim is very fast I know. Maybe the experience takes her away from the youth, but she shouldn’t learn much. This has a strong cost.”
19-year-old Wim van Impel also performed this scene. “I wanted revenge on Dendermonde, as I lost my rhythm after a mistake.”
“I had a good plan today. I had to stick with it and it worked out really well, although I was hoping for a sprint. But I made a mistake on the last touchdown and was a few meters behind.”
