UCI World Cup, round 3 - Ronde van Vlaanderen Vrouwen 

Oudenaarde, 127.4 km

 

Race Writeup

Marianne Vos (Rabobank) has finally added the Ronde van Vlaanderen to her list of wins. Vos won the sprint from the break group ahead of Ellen van Dijk (Specialized-lululemon) and Emma Johansson (Orica-AIS) and Elisa Longo Borghini (Hitec). With the win Vos now has a solid lead in the World Cup standings. 

At the start of the race, 165 riders at started under cold but dry conditions. On the route to the Paddestraat the bunch stayed together despite a number of small crashes. After 28 km, the bunch was together, but a crash involving Orica-AIS and Specialized Lululemon caused the bunch to split just as the front of the peloton was putting on the pressure. On the decent of the Molenberg, the peloton was split. 30 riders initially formed the lead group with 40 chasers. Eventually a leading group of 70 riders formed. 

With 60km completed, Susanna Zorzi (Faren Honda) broke away and managed to gain a maximum gap of 1 minute 21 seconds. As the chase approached the Valkenberg climb, another crash disrupted the chase. Again Specialized-lululemon were involved with Wiggle Honda and Dolmans. After Valkenberg the gap to the lone leader was dropping fast and was down to 32 seconds. 

Eventually Zorzi was back in the main group. The peloton was disintegrated into many groups with approximately 50 riders in the lead group. After the Kanarieberg the leading bunch split with 10 seconds between the 2 groups which was caused by an attack from 2 riders Lucinda Brand (Rabobank) and Amanda Spratt (Orica-AIS)

With 30km to go the attack was over and a leading group of 50 riders were fighting for position as Oude Kwaremont. As the leaders appraoched the top of the Oide Kwaremont, Vos attacked. Johansson, Longo Borghini went with her. Ellen van Dijk launched a chase from behind to join the group. the four leaders quickly gained a 20 second lead. 

Four chasers Annemiek van Vleuten (Rabobank), Loes Gunnewijk (Orica-AIS), Adrie Visser (Argos Shimano), Lizzie Armitstead (Boels Dolmans) and Anne Van der Breggen (Sengers Ladies) were chasing 40 seconds back from the leaders. The leaders were maintaining a steady tempo, holding a 25 second lead ahead of two chasers van Vleuten and  Van der Breggen. The remaining chasers were are 32 seconds (Visser,  Armitstead and  Gunnewijk)

On the fast run to the finish the leading group, dropped to three briefly. Vos, Longo Borghini and VanDijk dropped Johansson momentarily, but she managed to get back to the leaders. The fast, flat road to the finish allowed the leaders to deliver constant attacks. The leaders were holding a gap of 1 minute 2 seconds on the 5 chasers. With 5km to go Johansson  attacked from the break. She did not get far however. Vos and van Dijk tried to go then Longo Borghini was next to try to attack. With 400m to go it was a drag sprit to the line. Vos crossed first ahead of van Dijk, Johansson and Longo Borghini.
