Two of the nine cobblestone sections were cut from the course (confirmation during the race!), but the remaining seven, the four ascents of the VAMberg, the rain, the wind, and not least the length (>150 km) made it a hard race that belies its 'bunch sprint' result.

Ryan is on fire at the moment but I hadn't realised she was only 23, so that probably explains the improvement from placings to podiums. #canyon looking like a proper team this season after a terrible (and rather inexplicable) underperformance in 2017.

The women's field at this level is still largely an affair of four or five teams though: #boels, #sun, #canyon and a rotation of #mitchelton, #ale or #wiggle depending on the race.
