Kalmthout, Belgium, World Cup #1 - Sue Butler top USA racer!

Dutch champion Baphny van den Brand's takes her 3rd consecutive opener. Hot rod Canadian Wendy Simms finished 8th, while powerhouse Katie Compton of the USA pulled out during the 1st lap, due to a muscle pull that might be the same muscle she had issues with last season. Ouch!  Not good for the very powerful racer.

That left Sue Butler (Monavie / Cannondale) Wobble-naught & Myo-facts sEMG/Dartfish user as the top American.  The 37 year young Butler wants to rise in the ranks, but not a the cost of Katie Compton having to pull out of the race.  Sue came in at a very respectful 14th, only  1.54 back from the winner.  We know she can run in the top 10 as Wendy Simms placed 8th and Sue took a win over her in the Seattle, WA.
