Fresh off a stage 7 win at the Giro d'Italia Internazionale Femminile, Lotte Kopecky (Lotto Soudal Ladies) secured her second national title of 2020 at the Belgian National Championships. After winning the time trial title last month in Koksijde, Kopecky launched a final kick at the line to win the elite women’s road race title over breakaway companion Jolien D’hoore (Boels-Dolmans) in Anzegem on Tuesday. 

Led with a charge by Kopecky, the two-rider breakaway pushed the pace from the peloton and the morning fog with 50.5km to go in the 131.6km race, which was held on seven laps of 18.8km loop.
