Accompanied in the initial phase by Lourdes Oyarbide and Sheyla Gutiérrez, and carried on the wings in the difficult final laps by the immeasurable Aude Biannic and Alicia González, Norsgaard kept calm in the face of attacks from Grace Brown and the final breakaway from Shirin Van Anrooij (Trek Segafredo) and Vittoria Guazzini (FDJ Nouvelle Aquitaine) to launch her sprint at the right moment and impose herself with absolute authority on Chiara Consonni (Valcar Travel & Service).

The winner declard that “It was a fantastic finish. The team worked hard for me, already on Sunday with the work of Aude and all the teammates at Hageland, and being able to finish here, in my third race, is the best way to restore their confidence and reward that work. The end there, with those two breakaways ahead, could give me some nerves but I tried to run as calmly as possible. I knew I had very strong teammates, focused on my options, and I tried to keep the cool head: ‘Go easy, find your distance and shoot’. In the end, everything worked out perfectly. This long opening weekend in Belgium has been fantastic for confidence, and now it’s time to get some air in the coming weeks and thinking about the big classics that come in the next month, which are a big goal for me“.
