After the Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, CCC-Liv also presented itself well in the Spar Omloop van het Hageland. Jeanne Korevaar just about missed the top ten after a lively final. The Italian Marta Bastianelli won.
“It was a pretty nervous race, with a high pace. The peloton occasionally broke apart and each time the groups reconnected”, says sports director Jeroen Blijlevens.
In the final of the race, at 22 kilometres from the finish, the last escapee was reeled back in. A thinned-out peloton prepared for a sprint. Jeanne Korevaar tried it in the slot sprint, but she had already punched herself out in the preparatory work. She just about missed the top ten.
“I saw good team work today”, says sports director Jeroen Blijlevens. “Jeanne Korevaar was alert and always responded to attacks. It's a pity that she did not end up closer in the ranking.”
