Lotte Kopecky wins the first race of the season!
First race of the season and immediately two Lotto Soudal Ladies on the podium! Lotte Kopecky sprinted to victory this morning in the Vuelta a la Comunitat Valenciana Feminas. Her teammate Thi That Nguyen, for whom this was her début in the Lotto Soudal shirt, claimed the third place. Alice Barnes finished second.
Lotte Kopecky: “I felt pretty good right from the start. I had asked my teammates to keep me safely at the front in the last four to three kilometres and they did that perfectly. It’s nice to be able to win here, especially with the Track World Championships in mind, which are coming up in two and a half weeks. This is good for my confidence and for the team.”
