Lucinda Brand (Telenet Baloise Lions) won World Cup Namur in 2018 and came back to the Citadel to defend on Sunday, where she attacked on lap 3 and won by 16 seconds in truly horrible conditions.
In our interview with 8th-place finisher Rebecca Fahringer, she noted the importance of taking every opportunity to learn from others during pre-ride.
The day before her victory, Brand took time to learn the course, pre-riding with Telenet-Baloise team manager and two time World Champion Sven Nys. She recorded the pre-ride on a GoPro and posted the 10-minute video on YouTube.
See Brand’s pre-ride below, where she and Nys test lines and prepare for racing the next day.
World Cup racing returns on Thursday at Heusden-Zolder. Check back here for results, reports and photos.
