Women’s Bike Race Had To Stop Because They Caught Up To The Men

It’s not often that a race has to be stopped, because someone was going too fast.  But it happened Saturday, during a women’s cycling race, in Belgium.  Officials had to pause the race, because the front-runner, was going so fast that she caught up with the men’s race, which had departed 10 minutes earlier.  Unfortunately for Nicole Hanselmann, the delay stalled her momentum; and allowed the rest of the pack to catch up.  She ended up finishing in 74th place.  Afterwards, the 27-year-old Hanselmann, shared a post-race photo, to Instagram, saying:  “the other women and me were too fast or the men too slow” along with #womenpower.
