Last weekend the GNSK took place in Wageningen. DM represented team Maastricht in the cycling events. Due to a small accident, the women’s team could not participate in the team disciplines. Nevertheless, Renate rode a very strong criterium on Sunday.
On Saturday the first discipline for the Men’s team was the Team time trial, in which Thom and Ivo where the running engines of the squad. After this the sprintcup was planned, but all our men where still tired from the TTT and did not come further then pre-rounds.
Besides the criterium on Sunday there was also an individual time trial. Thom, Jannes and Ivo rode very strong, but it was not good for a close spot in the ranking. Therefore, the hope of the weekend was put on Ivo for the criterium. Unfortunately, the Spanish flat of the Wageningse muur was soon too much for Thom and Jannes, therefore Ivo had to uphold the honour. In the last laps he escaped in a group of 4 and sprinted to a second place!
Overall, it was a very sociable weekend, where we all had a good time!
