After the excellent result on Saturday (a fourth place in Lille), Inge van der Heijden showed in Hoogstraten on Sunday that she can also race on a muddy course. She finished eighth and was satisfied with this result. Sanne Cant won the Superprestige cross.
“Muddy races are normally not my favourite, but it went well today. I had a good start and stayed at the front, but got it a little more difficult towards the end. I had to let go of Denise Betsema and Loes Sels and joined forces with Ellen Van Loy. We stayed in the same position, even though Eva Lechner passed us when the differences in the race had already been set. I am happy with this result. It indicates that I can also cope on a muddy course.”
