Chantal Blaak became the first woman to win Le Samyn two years in a row in Dour, Belgium Wednesday, out-sprinting Swede Emma Johansson, another former winner of the semi-classic.

Blaak, riding for Boels – Dolmans, got the better of two Wiggle – High5 riders in the finale, between Johansson and fellow Dutchwoman Amy Pieters. The 112.8km race finished with local laps around Dour, which included four tough cobblestone sectors.

“We can make it hard,” Blaak said before the race. “The course is hard enough to do that. I think it’s good for the team. For me, because I won last year, I have a lot of confidence.”
