Women Elite history
After a 10km solo from Nokereberg, Demi Vollering added Dwars door Vlaanderen to her record of achievements after Strade Bianche earlier this season. Last year's winner Consonni sprinted to second place, with Marianne Vos completing the podium.
As of today, Amy Pieters is the only rider to have won Dwars door Vlaanderen three times. The Dutch rider did so three times in a row between 2014 and 2016. In her first win in 2014, she won in a sprint of five ahead of Kim de Baat. A year later, she defeated Floortje Mackaij, her teammate at Team Liv-Plantur. In 2016, the race ended in a bunch sprint. In this, Pieters was faster than her teammate at Wiggle – High5, Jolien D’hoore.
