Zipping Up LBL18-1
Perhaps it was a little bit of foreshadowing, but it was Anna Van Der Breggen (Boels Dolman) who came to the finish alone. She had time to savor her victory (and zip up her jersey) before saluting the crowd. It is disappointing that all we could see of the second Women's Liege Bastogne Liege was the final kilometer. And even that little bit was sandwiched inbetween some duller moments of the early kilometers of the men's race. There has been some movement towards parody in prize money for men and women, now we need to get some parody in base salaries and TV/Web broadcast coverage. It was foreshadowing of how the men's race would be decided in about another three hours.
