Gooik-Geraardsbergen-Gooik - Race Overview

Australian Gracie Elvin has claimed her first ever European victory in Gooik-Geraardsbergen-Gooik today. The ORICA-AIS rider left fellow escapees Ellen van Dijk and Mayuko Hagiwara behind her.

The race was characterised by its short, but sharp climbs and cobbles. The rainy and windy conditions gave an even more Spring Classic like feel to the race, conditions which suit Gracie well: “I really wanted to test myself, especially since I knew the parcours suited me well: the Belgian roads and small climbs and few cobbles, I ride well with hard conditions.
