bpost Bank Trofee 8, C1 – February 23

 

The Internationale Sluitingsprijs held at Oostmalle, Belgium is the 8th and final round of the bpost Bank Trofee.

 

Last year Niels Albert and Sann Cant won in a race that featured arctic conditions. This time it would seem that Nikki Harris, Helen Wyman and Sven Nys are the form riders.
