A great Van Vleuten gives the Tour of Flanders to Movistar

The Dutch, the great signing of the Spanish team, achieved victory with an attack on the Paterberg and an amazing solo ride to the finish line.


Annemiek van Vleuten has already made a profit from her signing for the women's Movistar and registered the name of the Spanish team in a race such as the Tour of Flanders. The 38-year-old Dutchwoman added her 76th triumph, the second time she was crowned in the flamenco classic with a ten-year separation. "But this time it was very nice to achieve it with the new team," said the runner. It is his second triumph with the telephones after Through Flanders.

His victory came after a huge display. He tried to leave alone on several occasions, but the final attack was at the Paterberg. No one could follow Van Vleuten, which was a problem for him: he had to face the remaining 17 km alone. But that did not detract from the Dutch, who based on moving a great development, almost stuck but advancing a lot in each pedal stroke, kept the chasing group at bay, who could only see how they raised their arms.

Fantastic success for the European champion and for the Spanish team, who see their determined commitment to the women's team profitable, which aspires to become one of the great references. And the Dutch is the visible head to achieve it, and she knows it: "Signing for Movistar was the boost my career needed" .
