What a beautiful news I got descending from Corno alle Scale! Lars van der Haar scored a well deserved podium place in Oudenaarde, and Klaas Vantornout also did a great race, finishing 5th. The winner was Wout van Aert, in front of Kevin Pauwels.
Among the elite women Jolien Verschueren won, while Eli Iserbyt has been the first one in the U23 race. As far as the Junior Men, Thomas Mein won.
For me, it has been a complicated day... I'll tell you more. But wow! The mountain was wonderful!
Lars van der Haar:
"Happy with third place on the KoppenbergCross!! It was a hard one. And had to dig deep and play smart. But this feels good. :-) #WorkHard!"
"Happy with my top 5 place! Nice to mix with those young lions! Nice to be in front to fights in the crowds ..."
