Lisa Klein (Canyon-SRAM Racing) rounded out the podium on Wednesday in Danilith Nokere Koerse in Belgium, finishing just a handful of seconds behind winner Amy Pieters (Team SD Works) and runner-up Grace Brown (Team BikeExchange).

The trio formed the winning break with around 50km remaining, and despite a frantic chase from the peloton and the leaders’ advantage dipping to just 12 seconds, they remained clear all the way to the line. Pieters proved the strongest on the cobbled climb to the line with Klein, 24, slightly distanced.

Cyclingnews is the world's leader in English-language coverage of professional cycling. Started in 1995 by University of Newcastle professor Bill Mitchell, the site was one of the first to provide breaking news and results over the internet in English. The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
