Racereport Studentcup Wageningen 2019

Racereport Studentcup Wageningen 2019

Last Saturday the Hellingproof squad didn’t have to travel far because it was time for the Hellingproof student cup! The morale was even higher than last week due to our successes during the studentencup in Enschede and the fact that it was a ‘home game’ this time. The men without license kicked off the day. Hellingproof was well presented in this race with thirteen riders, with two of them, Arnau and Levien, riding their first race and they did a great job. It was an exciting race with lots of attacks containing several Hellingprofs, However none of these attacks formed a breakaway that could keep it up till the end. So the race ended in a bunch sprint in which Bram managed to sprint again for a spot on the podium, the 3th place this time, and Robin sprinted to a well-deserved 4th place. Moreover, Bram also secured the first place in the general classification!

After the men without licence had kicked off the day it was time for the women’s race. Anouk, Ehlana, and Susan represented the women this time. After a few laps three women, including Anouk, formed a breakaway and the bunch didn’t manage to catch them. The breakaway ended up in a sprint in which Anouk sprinted to an awesome 2nd place!

  • Quiz and drinks at the Bongerd, from 15:00
  • Eating together at Haarweg and the legendary Hellingproof beerpong tournament (Address will be announced)

  • Brunching together at the Bongerd at 12:00, bring your most delicious breakfast ingredient!
  • After the stomach has been filled it will be time for the well-known trip to the Posbank including a coffeestop off course

 

There will be no charge for the introduction weekend, the more reason to come! As you can see, there is again a very nice programme for the introduction weekend and when you are new to Hellingproof this is the way to get to know your fellow Hellingprofs. We already look forward to the introduction weekend and hope to see a lot of (potential) Hellingprofs at the introduction weekend!

 

Sportive greetings,

Student cup Utrecht

On Sunday the 23rd of June the student cup of Utrecht took place. The student races started with the women’s race, in which Sigrid and Anna participated. During the race Sigrid was easy pedalling in the bunch and even had enough time to photograph Tjalle eating some unhealthy food:

Anna didn’t manage to see this ‘act of crime’ by Tjalle during the race but at the end of the race she still sprinted to a nice 5th place!

Afterwards it was time for the men without license. After about 15 minutes this race was stopped due to a large crash, in which luckily no Hellingprofs were badly injured. After the re-start the Domrenner (Utrecht), who were with a lot of riders, tried to control the race. However they weren’t successful, since Harmen managed to escape and drop his fellow escapee. This led him to his first student cup victory! Behind him, the Hellingproof train was on fire, which resulted in a 2nd place for Robin and a 3rd place for Bram. A first every Hellingproof clean sweap in the student cup!

Hellingproof BBQ

Thursday 20th of June there was the yearly and already famous Hellingproof BBQ to celebrate that it is almost time for the summer holidays. This year the BBQ didn’t take place at Hoevestein but near the earth houses at Haarweg. Harmen provided some nice goat meat, while the Axi made sure that there was also enough food for the vegetarian Hellingprofs.

After everyone had eaten their belly round, it was time for a game of Hellingproof football. Not to confuse with normal football, since Hellingproof football is a lot more aggressive (Onno). Last year there were people with severe injuries from the BBQ football game. This year it was only limited by some bruises (or maybe this means that the game was not played well enough). Afterwards everyone recovered from the effort and enjoyed some more drinks.

It was a very successful and ‘gezellige’ BBQ and we’re looking forward to next years BBQ!
