Brilliant finale at the Women’s GP de Wallonie: With the finishing touch in sight, frontrunner Justine Jquiere lost control of her bike. Don’t worry about her team, Blantur-Bora: Julie de Wilde took the reins and set off for victory at Namur Castle.
Yara Castelen paved the way for Justin Gekiri with two attacks on Namur Castle. The 26-year-old was on her way to victory on her own, until – she was visibly tired – she misjudged the last corner.
Ghekiere fired off the click pedal and had to leave the win to teammate Julie De Wilde. Kastelijn finished third. So Blantur-Bora took over the entire stage.
