Ilse Pluimers makes Dutch fans shout for joy at the European Championship with promises | European Cycling Championship

At the European Championships in Drenthe, the Netherlands took the gold medal in the women’s tournament. Ilse Pluimers forced the decisive attack in the last round and neatly finished the attack on the VAM mountain.

Mike van der Duyn wanted to highlight the Dutch colors in her backyard, but the Dutch woman from Assen chose a star for her duet with Zoe Backstedt on the local circuit in Drenthe.

With two laps to go, Van der Duyne was gasping for breath on the VAM mountain, and Bäckstedt had no choice but to start solo for about 30 kilometres.

Bäckstedt abandons Van der Duin.

Despite the great drive of multiple British talents, this has proven to be an impossible task for the new European time trial champion. At the bell of the final round everything came together again.

With Elsie Ploemers and Anna Shackley, the Netherlands and Great Britain sounded the alarm once again at the moment of truth.

It turned out to be the right move and it became a house party for the Dutch team. Blumers heaped praise on Shackley as he secured the under-23 title.

In 2019, the Dutchwoman, under contract with AG Insurance-Soudal-Quick Step, also won the European Junior title.

De Wilde: “We had to be in the leading group, period.”

Julie de Wilde reacted with frustration in 21st place. “One of us should have been in the lead group, period,” de Wilde felt disappointed after the race.

“It’s not that I felt bad. I could have continued climbing VAM just fine. But what happened there didn’t happen.”
