Lorena Wiebes (Team Sunweb) has won the women’s Driedaagse Brugge-De Panne one-day race. After a wind-blown race, a group of just over 20 riders contested the sprint, and Jolien D’hoore (Boels Dolmans) was first over the line, but after a review of the finish, the Belgian sprinter was relegated for irregular sprinting.

Led out by her teammates, Wiebes waited for a long time before launching her sprint, and D’hoore got the jump on the young Dutch sprinter. But Wiebes had the higher end speed, and D’hoore deviated from her line to keep Wiebes behind, and the race jury judged this to be irregular and relegated D’hoore. 

Lisa Brennauer (Ceratizit-WNT) moved up to second place, with Lotte Kopecky (Lotto Soudal) rounding out the podium.

“I started a second too late, actually,” Wiebes recounted the sprint. “Jolien came from behind and boxed me in a bit, so I lost some speed. I still went all-in because it is only over at the finish line.”

Wiebes came up on D’hoore’s left side, and D’hoore reacted by drifting towards the barriers – and was eventually relegated for this.

Asked about the relegation, Wiebes said: “I don’t know, really. I realised that the closer we got to the line, the closer she came to the barriers on my side. It is sprinting, but we have seen how it can end with Fabio [Jakobsen], unfortunately,” she ended, referencing the heavy crash by her compatriot in the Tour de Pologne, caused by a similar deviation by Dylan Groenewegen.
