This eight-kilometre jog across Cornes and Soirons will be complicated by the fickle weather of the past few days. Difficult enough conditions for some participants to rename this jog as “trail”.
During this race, a group of three separated from the rest of the peloton, with Stefan Koninks leading the way, and it was soon apparent that he had kept his pursuers at a considerable distance. It was in the last two kilometers that Julian Klassen, who finished second in the race, decided to accelerate. He got back to Stephane 50 meters from the line and won by inches after an incredible sprint. He therefore dethroned the challenger leader. Manu Ordonez had just finished on the podium.
Sonya Belnikov from another planet
On the women’s team, Sonya Belnikov took the lead and went on to the next victory. A few minutes later we could see the same family duo consisting of Julia and Camille Jaminette, with Julia in her second place and Camille in her third. Because she knows Camille shares her life with Julian Klassen, their romantic jogging trip will be a success and end up on the podium. Anything more?
