Holland Hills Classic 2007

Vos wins ahead of Ljungskog

Gulpen Netherlands, 127.5km



Marianne Vos (DSB Bank) escaped on the last climb of the Gulpenberg, managing to get away from a group of about 20 riders that had broken free at 50km to go. Going with Vos, Andrea Graus (Équipe Nürnberger Versicherung), Suzanne Ljungskog (Team Flexpoint) and Chantal Beltman (T-Mobile) the small group secured a safe lead on the chasers.  

Beltman attacked at the one kilometre point. In her attempt to take the race with a long ‘charge’, she fell foul of her own exuberance; a too-fast exit from a roundabout caused her to mount the grass verge, delaying herself and dropping behind the others. By the time she had managed to get herself back on the road the three chasers passed and she could only try to make up an impossible gap, eventually finishing fourth.

At the finish line, Vos beat Ljungskog, while Andrea Graus came in third place holding the sprint ahead of the chasing Beltman. The overall team classification was won by her team DSB Bank.

Marianne Vos (DSB Bank) This win in the Gulpen Hills Classic was her fourth of the 5 races in the Dutch Top Competition for women. Before the start Vos was already sure about winning the final overall classification and the young rider’s classification, "I wanted to win the Gulpen Hills Classic, because it is the most prestigious one day race in Holland for all the Dutch riders" said Vos
