Fast day in Houtse Linies as Hartthijs takes 12th

Another hard day in today’s Omloop van de Houtse Linies! 

The wind appeared in the first part of the race and quickly the peloton was reduced to small groups even before the first lap was completed. It did not stop but our guys were always between the first and the second group, in a race that featured a lot of abandons due to the tough weather conditions and high speed.

The final was played between a 5-man group that was upfront during the last part of the race. Hartthijs was in the group behind the leaders and sprinted to 12th place. 

Another weekend done and dusted, next up is Tour de Normandie where our guys arrived today. Way to go guys!
