Women Elite history
Switzerland's Marlen Reusser started her solo towards Wevelgem 40 km from the line. More than two minutes behind the winner, Jastrab raced to second place just ahead of Van der Duin.
Kirsten Wild managed to win Gent-Wevelgem twice during her career. The Dutch rider won the sprint from a select leading group in 2013, in front of her compatriot Sanne Van Paassen and the Belgian Kelly Druyts. Six years later, in 2019, she again tasted success on the Vanackerestraat. In her second win, she was faster than Lorena Wiebes in a bunch sprint.
