National middle distance event:
Today the 2nd Belgian national event took place. Everyone could expect a fast race in the north of Flanders. Both the terrain and the coursesetting (H21E) were very nice.
Fabulous Fabi showed again his great shape and won this race very easily. He ran an average 4'48min/km! His strongest opponent was again Thomas van der Kleij, but he lost more than 2 minutes at control 21 (H21E). A lot of runners lost time at this control, because it wasn't placed at the right place. Also at control 13 (H21E) the map wasn't totally correct (very fast average min/km towards control 14, because the distance wasn't correct).
At the end Jeroen Hoekx finished in 2nd position, only 1 second ahead of junior runner Wouter Leeuws.

H21E: (7100m)
1. PASQUASY Fabien 0:34:09
2. HOEKX Jeroen 0:38:08
3. LEEUWS Wouter 0:38:09
In women's class it was obvious that Kim Geypen is in good shape at this moment (see results physical testrun). Also today she won the race 4 minutes ahead of Belgian night champion Greet Oeyen. Catherine Hoofd took a good start this season and finished in 3rd position.

D21E: (5500m)
1. GEYPEN Kim 0:37:27
2. OEYEN Greet 0:41:43
