In the surroundings of Ottergem, organized by the town Erpe-Mere, Ella Heremans from the junior team of AG Insurance – Soudal clinched the first place in the sixth edition of the Lady Cycling Trophy. Covering a distance of 84 kilometers, spread over 12 laps, Heremans secured the victory in a field of elite competitors, ahead of Mille Troelsen and Ursula Lindén.

After the race, Ella Heremans shared, “I participated to improve my racing rhythm. Despite starting in a field of experienced elite women cyclists, my legs quickly felt strong, and we broke away around the 10 kilometer mark. At the start, I never thought I would be in a position to win, but that realization truly came only in the last lap. I attempted a few breakaways, but when those didn’t pan out, it all came down to a final sprint, and I won it. I am incredibly happy with this victory.”
