Eileen Roe wins in Friesland

Eileen Roe (Team Ibis Cycles) won today's 31st Profronde van Surhuisterveen, making full use of her strong sprinting ability to cross the line ahead of Anouska Koster (2nd, Dolmans-Boels) and Trieneke Fokkens (3rd) after a race that saw difficult conditions caused by very heavy rainfall.

22-year-old Roe used a similar tactic to win the Colchester round of the Johnson HealthTech Women's GP in June, beating Vanderkitten's Ruth Winder and Twenty3c.co.uk-Orbea's Alice Barnes on that occasion. Her sprint seems, therefore, to be a powerful talent and is one that will be sure to bring her many more victories.

Chapeau Eileen - we'll be looking forward to seeing you race in the 2016 Olympics!
