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.
