National winner Belgium 4.921 old birds: Van De Walle M & F (Zwalm, BE)

The bros Marc & Francky Van De Walle (Zwalm, BE) are the new official winners in Belgium from Bordeaux (Villeneuve Agen). What happend? The original winners in the national prognosis made a big mistake by not clocking their control-ring within the 10 minutes (according to the national rules KBDB), they did it afte 17 minutes. So their official clock-time became 19h24 (instead of 19h07)... and because of that they lost their national victory. The new national winners are Marc & Francky Van De Walle from Zwalm (province East-Flanders)! With an average speed of 1071 m/min, they are the new 'national winners' against the 4.921 old birds in Belgium!
