Marta Lach cannot be happier after the amazing stage victory in the GP Elsy Jacobs on Saturday. “This was my day!”
“It was a tough race with the rain, but I wasn't cold. This morning I felt good at the start and I kept that good feeling the entire time. During the race I saw several attacks. When Elena Pironne was in the lead and a small group counter-attacked, I knew that this was the time to go as well”, says Marta.
“The cooperation at the front was good, but not optimal. I saw my chances for a win and gave it my all. When I looked behind in the last kilometre, I saw the peloton approaching. At 500 metres I tried, but my two competitors reconnected. At less than 300 metres I hit the pedals again and crossed the finish line. A fantastic feeling.”
