Demi Vollering wins Brabantse Pijl, sixth Rooijakkers | 1Limburg

Demi Vollering has handled her disappointment about second place in the Amstel Gold Race well. On Wednesday, he clinched victory in the Belgian classic, Brabantse Pijl. Pauliena Rooijakkers, who hails from Venray, finished sixth.

Vollering, team leader of the Limburg SD Worx, rode alone on the Moskesstraat about 10 kilometers from the finish in Overijse. He crossed the finish line alone.

Too early
More than 141 kilometers are traveled between Sint-Pieters-Leeuw and Overijse. The 25-year-old SD Worx racer was desperate to win. Not only because he missed a win at the Amstel Gold Race last Sunday, but also because he finished second at the Brabantse Pijl last year. Then he seemed to have won the match but was cheering too early. She was eventually defeated by 0.0004 seconds by England’s Ruth Winder.

Just like last Sunday at the Amstel Gold Race, Pauliena Rooijakkers is in good form. Then he colored his way by breaking out twice. During the Brabantse Pijl final, a group of fifteen riders stayed behind. For the sake of Vollering and Pauliena Rooijakkers (Canyon-SRAM) managed to escape from the group, they immediately opened a gap. Vollering then tried harder and managed to get away from his runaway partner.

The Rooijakkers, who rode their leader Katarzyna Niewiadoma, eventually crossed the line in sixth place. The Polish leader secured second place in a long sprint, ahead of Liane Lippert (Team DSM) who finished third. German Lippert also finished third in the Amstel Gold Race.
