Marianne Vos wins Gent-Wevelgem Women

Gent-Wevelgem Women returned to its traditional March 28 on the calendar, after being held in October last year as part of the late-season revised calendar. 

Marianne Vos (Team Jumbo-Visma) has won the women's Gent-Wevelgem as she was fastest to the line in the sprint of a reduced peloton, beating Lotte Kopecky (Liv Racing) and Lisa Brennauer (Ceratizit-WNT).

The start of Gent-Wevelgem was moved from Ypres' Grote Markt to the Menin Gate last year, but will likely keep a similar route for this year's edition. The race is not accessible to spectators on climbs or on cobbled sectors as organisers have taken steps to minimise COVID-19 risks in the region.

The women raced 141 kilometres with three Plugsteets, and seven main climbs including twice over the Monteberg and Kemelberg en route to the finish in Wevelgem.
