bpost Bank Trofee 4, C1 – December 21
The fourth round of the bpost Bank Trofee is the GP Rouwmoer held at Essen, Belgium.

 

The 2012/13 race finished with a sprint that saw an apologetic Zdenek Stybar switch Jan Denuwelaere into the barriers. Afterward the judges awarded Denuwelaere the win and demoted Stybar back to 4th. Stybar returns to make one of a few starts this season.

This is a hard course, look out for the off camber sections where only the really hard ride all the way. Last season there were wins for Kevin Pauwels and Katie Compton. If it rains… well, ‘may the Lord have mercy on their souls’. It snowed for the women’s race last time.
