Kirsten Wild is the only one to grace our list of record holders. In 2013, she won the sprint of a select leading group ahead of her compatriot Sanne Van Paassen and our compatriot Kelly Druyts. Six years later in 2019, the now 36-year-old Wild won again in a bunch sprint on the "Via Vanackere" (and this three days after winning in "Driedaagse Brugge-De Panne", also a W.W.T. race). This time she was faster than the 21-year-old Lorena Wiebes, the Dutch upcoming sprint lady. 

On the track, Kirsten belongs to the absolute world top with 8 European and 8 world titles to her name since 2013 and countless national titles in Dutch track cycling. 

However, she started her cycling career on the road in 2004. In 2008 she took her first classic victory in Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, her first win on Flemish roads. That same spring, she finished in the top 10 in the Tour of Flanders, a sign that even after a tough race she was still one of the fastest riders in the pack. Because of her sprinting abilities, she mainly competes in stage races around the world, where she has won numerous stages since. In the 2016 World Championships on the road in Doha she finished in second place, her best result ever at a World Championship.
