Peeters wins first night competition: map and results
Yesterday the first individual night competition of the new season took place in 'Bos Van Hees'. In mens class Ken Peeters showed his good shape. He began his race with a 2 minutes mistake, but after that warning he performed very strong. He overtook Thomas van der Kleij and together they ran to the victory. Ken Peeters is obviously the new leader in the overall nightranking.
Thomas van der Kleij took the 2nd spot and Desmond Franssen became 3rd with a little margin ahead of Jan Oeyen (4th). Last years night king, Wim Vervoort, finished in 9th position today.
In womens class Greet Oeyen took the victory in class 1 and Leen Wouters won class 2.
You can read the reports from several runners on their attackpoint log: Ken Peeters, Thomas van der Kleij, Desmond Franssen, Jan Oeyen, Dries van der Kleij and Joost Talloen.
Next week the 2nd individual night race will take place in a technical area (Balendijk) with a mass start. A lot of strong runners will be present at the startline (even Alexander Lubina from Germany). Don't forget to register for this competition as soon as possible at the mass start by night website.
