Just like last year Jolien D'hoore won the women's omnium at the Lotto Six Days Flanders-Ghent after she was the best in all six events, spread over three days.
D'hoore opens strongly in the scratch
Nice fourth place for Vandenbulcke
The ladies team of Lotto Soudal will be composed of fifteen riders next year. Eight women will stay with the team, that means there are seven new names compared to 2014. The youth team consists of four riders.
Ladies team 2015
Tuesday the Lotto Six Days Flanders-Ghent began. Tomorrow, Friday the 21st of November, the women will start their Three Days Omnium. Jolien D'hoore, Molly Meyvisch and Jesse Vandenbulcke, rider of the Lotto Belisol Ladies youth team, will take part in it. There will be twelve women in total.
The first night the scratch and individual pursuit are programmed. Saturday it's the elimination and 500-metres time trial. On the final day the women have to start at one o'clock in the afternoon. First they will cover the flying lap. Next is the points race, the last event of the women's omnium.
Past weekend the International Belgian Open Ghent took place. Four Lotto Belisol Ladies were part of the Belgian selection for this track event: Jolien D'hoore, Molly Meyvisch, Jesse Vandenbulcke and Catherine Wernimont.
D'hoore best in the omnium
Catherine Wernimont couldn't make it to the final of the keirin. She also took part in the sprint, she was ninth and last. Her teammate Molly Meyvisch got fourteenth in the scratch out of fifteen participants, in the points race she got tenth and last.
Last weekend Jolien D'hoore won gold in the omnium at the World Cup track in Guadalajara. She talks about how that felt. Her next two races are in Ghent.
Good start of the campaign for Rio

Jolien D'hoore has won the omnium at the World Cup track in Guadalajara, Mexico! During the podium ceremony she wasn't only awarded the gold medal, but she could put on the leader's jersey of the World Cup as well.
Successfully defended the first place
By winning this first World Cup of the season D'hoore leads the ranking. She can defend that position in London on 6th and 7th of December.
Today, Saturday 8th of November, and tomorrow Jolien D'hoore takes part in the omnium at the World Cup track in Guadalajara, Mexico. On day one the scratch, individual pursuit and elimination are programmed. Tomorrow there is first a 500-metres time trial and flying lap. The points race is the final event. The omnium starts today at 09:00 local time, that's 16:00 CET.
Next year Jessie Daams will reinforce the team. After four seasons she chooses again for a Belgian team. The 24-year-old Daams is a rider for selective one-day races, like the Flèche Wallonne, and tough stage races. In the past she won some medals on the track, but now she completely focuses on the road.
In 2012 Daams won the sixth stage of the Thüringen Rundfahrt. In the Boels Rental Hills Classic she finished in top ten a few times. In the Flèche Wallonne 2013 she got tenth. Last year she won the Flandrienne election. Jessie elaborates on her choice for Lotto Soudal.
