Emma Norsgaard, 2nd in her debut with Movistar at the Omloop

The 21-year-old Danish takes the podium of the classic, behind the world champion, Anna van der Breggen, who won alone.


Anna van der Breggen conquered her third Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, second in a row, after an attack on the Bosberg, which allowed her to raise her arms alone. Undeniable triumph of the world champion, the current great star of women's cycling. But in the sprint for the podium, the young Danish Emma Norsgaard, who debuted with the Movistar jersey, achieved, ahead of another star like Pieters, a creditable second place that places her as a candidate to become a reference in the tests of one day.

At 21 years old, Norsgaard, champion of Denmark, is one of the additions to Movistar this season, a team in which his brother Mathias also runs, and who was also present at the Belgian event (he finished 94th). The Spanish team, very active in the men's race (11th with Cortina), saw how their signing for the women's section allowed them to get on the podium in the first pavé race of the season. Norsgaard has arrived to reinforce a block that must have Annemiek Van Vleuten as a reference, who finished 21st in what was also her debut with the telephone jersey.
