Following prologue success and sprint glory yesterday, Team dsm-firmenich made it three of the best to complete a hat-trick of wins with Charlotte Kool this afternoon at the Baloise Ladies Tour.
Buoyed by their two wins so far, Team dsm-firmenich rolled out of Zulte this afternoon with the goal of making it three in a row. Taking control throughout the day, the team worked brilliantly to close down dangerous moves early on. Despite a bombardment of attacks that followed from the other teams with 40 kilometres to go when the break was caught, the team were able to react and adapt brilliantly, ensuring Kool was present to contest the finale. In the sprint to the line Kool once again showed her sprinting prowess, kicking hard and stamping on the pedals, coming across the finish with her arms raised aloft to take Team dsm-firmenich’s third win at the Baloise Ladies Tour so far.
