This Sunday, Marie Schreiber almost offered Luxembourg a medal in the U23 race at the European championships after an impressive start and finishing the first lap alongside world champion Puck Pieterse.
The 19 year old rider from Luxembourg rode for a long time in the first chasing group behind the untouchable Pieterse. In the end she finished fourth, 19 seconds from the podium, after six laps of racing.
The last ones to start this weekend, Kevin Kuhn and Quinten Hermans, also made a good start on the circuit on the Citadel of Namur while the rain started falling. Several riders slipped away, chasing the order of the riders in the lead of the race. Quinten Hermans was unfortunately one of them.
Swiss rider Kuhn, who was racing in ninth place halfway through the race, progressed to fifth on the line, his best result ever in a European Championship.
