Women Elite history
In 2022, Dwars door Vlaanderen for women was due an anniversary edition. As is often the case in Waregem, the 10th edition ended in a sprint with a large group and this despite the barrage of attacks along the way. It was the Italian Chiara Consonni who won the sprint on the Verbindingsweg. She made it ahead of the young Belgian talent Julie De Wilde and the Swiss Elise Chabbey.
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.
