Wild sprints to first season victory

Dutch rider outpaces Becker, Vos

Kirsten Wild has claimed her fourth consecutive victory at the Omloop van Borsele. The AA Cycling Team rider triumphed after the leading group of 11 was split leaving just six to fight it out for the win.

Charlotte Becker (HTC Highroad) and Mariannne Vos (Nederland Bloeit) took the remaining places on the podium.

"We were really ready for this one," Wild said after the race. "In recent weeks, there have been a number of times where I was defeated in sprints. Yet I knew that I had to wait today. My teammate Lucinda [Brand] attacked forcing the others to follow her with five kilometers to go. That put me in the box seat."

Attacks were the order of the day with Christina Becker (Skil-Koga Cycling Team) moving ahead of the bunch at the 25 kilometre mark for a maximum gap of just over a minute. Garmin-Ceervelo then put the pressure on at the front of the peloton and with 50 kilometres of racing complete, Becker was back to the main group.

Soon after a group of 20 riders went off the front, including Wild, Vos, Brand and Loes Gunnewijk (Nederland Bloeit). With five kilometres to go Brand attacked for a 10 second gain but was unable to hold her pace.

The lead group splintered, Wild went for the line and finished ahead of Becker by a wheel.
