Five conclusions after five Women’s WorldTour races

by Jeanine Laudy

As we’re heading towards the sixth round in the Women’s WorldTour next week at the Fleche Wallone, it’s time to reflect a little bit on the first five races of this new women’s cycling event.

Looking back at the start of the inaugural Women’s WorldTour, five conclusions can be drawn.

1. UNRIVALLED THUS FAR, BOELS-DOLMANS IS THE TEAM TO BEAT

Although Lizzie Armitstead (Boels-Dolmans) performed well in the World Cups in both 2014 and 2015, securing the overall World Cup twice in a row, the dominance of Boels-Dolmans this season is probably only rivalled by Marianne Vos’ (Rabo-Liv) domination until the 2015 season.

All wins in the inaugural Women’s WorldTour have gone to only two Boels-Dolmans riders: Armitstead won the Strade Bianche, the Trofeo Alfredo Binda and Tour of Flanders, while Chantal Blaak crossed the line first in the Ronde van Drenthe andGent-Wevelgem (plus finishing third in Flanders alongside her teammate).

          Well Matt…

          You just need to get an an Adelaide-based sub editor to do the DND. As a South Aussie I can proudly boast we are about 48 hours behind everyone else.

          There, you’ve got DND covered for every day of the week!
