Just looking at those women's results made me think. Why are good female Belgian cyclists so lacking in number?
Until we have 15 WWT teams, it's a bit unfair to only look at the 8 WWT teams. There's Jolien D'hoore on #boels and Lotte Kopecky on #lsl who are very much world class - while #fdj Demey is very much a domestique.

I've had someone explain the situation with female cyclists in Belgium to me on Twitter once, but I can't find that now.

In a nutshell: There's not much support for Belgian female cyclists in the youth categories.
