Nous étions jeunes et insouciants...

Gabriele D’Annunzio 

Marianne Vos is a champion, but also a great teammate. In her first race after a long break, she didn’t feel her best for la Flèche Wallonne (maybe she felt she’s won it enough already to ‘gift’ one?) so the World Champion set out to work for current U23 World Cup leader Pauline Ferrand Prevot, offering her the most luxurious wheel of the peloton to follow, setting her up perfectly at the bottom of the Mur de Huy, even letting her know when to attack (not before you see the finish she said). The french youngster obliged, executed the plan perfectly and bagged the biggest win of her carreer (even considering she has rainbow and national champion jerseys on and off the road herself too).
