After the dominant performance at Dwars door de Westhoek, Team DSM continued to impress at today’s edition of Dwars door het Hageland. After an attacking race, last weekend’s winner Pfeiffer Georgi proved her great shape and brought home a strong 3rd place for the team.
The race was shaped by attacks, crashes and splits in the peloton from the beginning on and new situations were created constantly, with Team DSM always being present in the important moves. Into the final 25 kilometres, another big group of 26 riders got away from the peloton, with Pfeiffer Georgi and Franziska Koch representing the team’s colours. The group rode well together until the final five kilometres, where the winning move of four riders attacked. Pfeiffer made the jump for the team and fought her way to the line on the punchy final kilometres, finishing on the podium for the team. Another great ride from the team, showing their strength on the challenging roads of Belgium.
