In a echelon-filled edition of Brugge-De Panne, the wind was strong in De Moeren, after which an elite group of 11 separated themselves. In it, World Tour leader Lorena Wiebes was also present, but the European champion was isolated. "At that moment we were just a bit too far, but Christine Majerus brought Lorena to the front, whereupon she made the jump. Unfortunately Christine couldn't make the connection herself as well, so we couldn't play the team game in the final," said sports director Anna van der Breggen.
A front group of seven would decide who would win Brugge-De Panne, with only DSM still having a duo in front. "When Megan Jastrab attacked, I remounted her," said Lorena Wiebes. "I did expect Pfeiffer Georgi's attack thereafter, but my legs filled up so immediately after the effort to catch Jastrab back. The cooperation was then lost in the chase."
