Team High Road’s Chantal Beltman won the Ronde Van Drenthe race on Saturday, notching the team’s second consecutive World Cup win.

World champion Marianne Vos was second and High Road’s Ina-Yoko Teutenberg was third at the race held in Drenthe, The Netherlands. The route includes several cobbled sections.

Beltman took off in a three-woman breakaway after the second section of cobbles and broke away from the group with five kilometers left in the race. She built up a maximum lead of just 20 seconds, and finished 6 seconds ahead of the chase.

“It was really, really close, particularly when I was out there alone.” Beltman said. “I just kept my head down and kept going as hard as I could. I really couldn’t say I’d won until I crossed the line.”

“Knowing that my team-mates were in the bunch was a great relief. That way I didn’t have to
worry if I was caught, even though I didn’t particularly want to be!”
