Karen Brouwer wins Hel van Groesbeek

Just like in 2015, 2016 and 2017 Karen Brouwer managed to win ‘de Hel van Groesbeek’ yesterday. Riding between the male riders she left all her female competitors far behind in this fast marathon over 105 kilometers in Groesbeek area. Teammate Gerben Mos was part of the leading men group from the start but paid the price after thirty kilometers. It looked like he was dropping back serious but a strong second part of the race brought him back to fifth place. Ramses Bekkenk and Bram Rood had a slow start and they finished at twelfth and seventeenth place behind winner Gert Jan Bosman.
