Annelies Dom is the new Belgian Female Cycling champion

Annelies Dom (Lotto-Soudal) has become the 2018 Belgian Female Cycling Champion. She beat off stiff competition from Valerie Demey (Lotto-Soudal) and the World Female Cyclocross Sanne Cant (Antwerpen). Annelies Dom succeeds Jolien D'Hoore.

While Annelies Dom completed the 103.2 kilometre course quickest, her team mate Valerie Demey was second in what was a great day for the Lotto-Soudal team.   

Annelies Dom is 32 and this is her first Belgian Championship title. Her victory in Binche (Hainaut) was the crowning glory of a morning’s hard work on the part of the Lotto-Soudal team.
