Henrion Belgian champion again

Ludivine Henrion (Red Sun Cycling Team) claimed the Belgian women's elite road championship on Sunday in Hooglede, Belgium. The national title was Henrion's second in three years.

"It's better than my first," she told Het Nieuwsblad. The 25-year-old admitted that the victory was the result of an opportunistic rather than a planned strategy.

Henrion attacked a small group coming into the finish in Gits and sprinted away to take a victory. It was a one-two finish for riders from the Dutch registered Red Sun Cycling Team as Latoya Brulee claimed second place ahead of Topsport-Vlaanderen rider Kelly Druyts.

Sunday's triumph repeated the Belgian national championship Henrion claimed in Zemst in 2007.
