By winning the 109 kilometre long marathon in Grafshaft, Karen Brouwer improved her course record from last year. Heavy rainfall before and during the race did not stop Brouwer from riding a fast and confident marathon.
“I remembered from last year’s marathon that it was a fast one, since my average speed had been 21,6 kilometres an hour. This year I started ahead of the race once again, riding together with the leader of the middle distance for a while but eventually I managed to take the lead’, explains a satisfied Brouwer. Monique Zeldenrust was runner up behind Brouwer. Team members Ramses Bekkenk and Ad de Brabander finished 4th and 11th respectively. Winner of the men’s race was Søren Nissen.
