The 6th round of the Women’s World Tour held today in Belgium, La Fleche Wallone Feminine, brought 137km of steep climbs and fierce competition.
The early action in the first ten kilometers set for a nail-biting finale, and Cylance Pro Cycling’s Sheyla Gutierrez played a big part. “A breakaway of seven riders dominated the opening kilometres. Emilia Fahlin (Alé Cipollini), Lex Albrecht (BePink), Anne-Sophie Duyck (Topsport Vlaanderen-Etixx), Jessica Allen (High5 GoExPro Australian Women’s Development Team), Cecilia Gothaas Johnsen (Hitec), Sheyla Gutiérrez (Cylance Pro Cycling) and Katia Ragusa (Servetto-Footon) broke away from the peloton around the 10-kilometre mark. The group hit the Côte d’Ereffe, the first of 11 categorised climbs over the 137-kilometre race, with a slim advantage that would grow to 3:15 before the first ascent of the Côte de Bohisseau.”
After the break was brought back, the podium would belong to Anna van der Breggen (GBR), Evelyn Stevens (USA) and Megan Guarnier (USA),
Cylance Pro Cycling is proud of the team’s efforts at Fleche Wallone and throughout the team’s spring campaign. Now the team will turn its attention to the new Tour of Yorkshire on April 30th, the Tour of Chongming Island WWT event leading into a block of racing in the USA kicked off by the Tour of CA WWT event.
