Building on success from the opening stage and bouncing back from bad luck yesterday, Team DSM rounded out their three days at RideLondon Classique in phenomenal fashion, controlling the stage and setting up Charlotte Kool who surged to the sprint win and with it secured the GC title.
The traditional finish stage in and around the streets of London saw some fast action with multiple attacks, but the team rallied around each other brilliantly, controlling the moves and ultimately setting things up for a bunch sprint finish. Coming forward en masse, the team held position in the finale before last lead out rider Pfeiffer Georgi took over, guiding finisher Kool to the front expertly. Launching with a powerful kick, the opposition came close but Kool won by a wheel length, with the Dutchwoman sitting up to celebrate a brilliant win as she crossed the line. It’s a result that also secures the GC title for Team DSM with Kool, putting the cherry on the cake of a good three days of racing in the United Kingdom.
