This is how everything went down...
In front of the picturesque landscape and harbor of Ostende, we had a long race weekend in Belgium. Two days to find out who is the strongest crit racer in the RAD RACE series 2017. Saturday in the qualifying the guys of CANYON RAD PACK started super fast and after a few laps Max Höflich, Henne Hüttepohl and Jo Fischer formed the breakaway. In the main group nobody managed to close the gap and therefore they made it to the finish line. Well, Sunday was just about the starting grid for Sunday.
In the women race Janine Bubner attacked with just a few laps to go and also made it to the finish line. With this strong performance she qualified for the pole position on Sunday.
The finals on Sunday were again dominated by the riders of CANYON RAD PACK. After two attacks in the first lap Fritz Ferner went on a solo breakawayand was joined 3 laps later by his team mate Ben Schnabel. No other attack could bring them back. Stefan Reimer won the sprint of the chasing group and finished on place three.
Also in the women race Janine Bubner did the same move as the day before. With a solo attack she won the RAD RACE CRIT 2017. In the sprint of the chasing group Jonnemei Colnot finished second and Caroline Gery-Frioud became third.
We are super happy that our friends from Ostende Koerst invited us to be part of their event. Thanks a lot for having us! It was a blast!
Thank you so much to all riders for taking part in the last RAD RACE SERIES event of the season. Stay tuned for all our epic events in 2018.
