Today, the Bigla riders took to the streets of Belgium for Driedaagse Brugge – De Panne, a race that is now in its second year on the Women’s WorldTour calendar. The 151km-long course started in Bruges and proceeded across largely flat roads until it reached a finishing circuit in De Panne. As expected, the finish was contested by the fast women of the peloton, with Julie Leth finishing just outside the top 10, in 12th position. These images from our photographer, Vélofocus, tell the tale.
