UCI Gravel World Series – A win at first gravel race for Lucinda Brand at 3RIDES

Lucinda Brand (Lidl-Trek) took on her first gravel race at 3RIDES in Aachen and won, while Daan Soete (Grobbendonk), claimed the elite men’s race at the UCI Gravel World Series round in Germany.

Brand took the win more than four minutes ahead of Rosa Klöser (MAAP x Rose Global Athlete), who was third at the Traka 200 earlier this month, while it was an impressive third from 18 year old Lore De Schepper (AG Insurance-Soudal NXTG). Three-time world cyclocross champion Sanne Cant (Crelan Corendon) was fourth while Lorena Wiebes (SD Worx-Protime) came fifth, finding better luck in her latest gravel foray after a crash bought her unstuck in the Traka 100.

In the elite men’s race it was a tight battle for the victory, which Soete took just ahead of Frederik Raßmann (Rose Racing Circle) and Dries van Gestel (Total Energies).
