The High-Speed Railway Line called CHANTAL departed earlier this year from Station Blaak, a station which is located in the heart of the city of Rotterdam. Ever since the 23rd of September 2017 the train is painted in the rainbow colours of Worldchampion Chantal! It’s great you bought yourself a ticket for this train trip.

After the Spring Classics, Chantal went to Ibiza to enjoy a one week holiday…

‘Work hard, play hard! It’s something I had to learn over the years… finding the right balance. I love to train real hard, being occupied with my job on a 24/7 basis. But I also enjoy living. I like nice food, I love socializing, travelling, shopping. My social life gives me energy.

Last Sunday the 25th of March the train stopped in Gent for Station 24: Gent-Wevelgem!

‘I won Gent-Wevelgem in 2016. Every victory counts for sure, but winning in Belgium… that’s something special. You just feel in the air that cycling is really huge in Belgium. It is and it remains a true privilege to race in Belgium.’

The Belgian classic cycle races in springtime. It feels like dancing on your best friends’ wedding. Marrying means promising eternal faith to eachother.

Last Sunday the 18th of March the train stopped in Taino (Italy) for Station 23: the Trofeo Binda!

‘It had been raining as from the start, just like the previous races Station 21, Strade Bianche and Station 22, the Tour of Drenthe. There was no sunshine at all. In spring and autumn the combination of the rain and the cold is an extra factor to take into account during a race. When we left, it was about five degrees.

De Hoge Snelheidstrein die Chantal heet vertrok begin dit jaar van Station Blaak. De trein ging deze week voor wat klein onderhoud in de remise bij Station Berkel en Rodenrijs. Aan de keukentafel van Chantal spraken we over haar ervaringen bij de Boels Rental Ladies Tour (in de volksmond de Holland Ladies Tour geheten), over het begrip “vorm” en over plassen tijdens de koers. Tevens keken we alvast vooruit naar het WK dat de komende weken op het programma staat.
