JUDITH ARNDT WINS THE TOUR OF GREATER MONTREAL 

Stage 3    -   80km, Terrebonne, Quebec

With solid help by her two remaining teammates, German Judith Arndt (Nurnberger-Versicherung) manages to hold on to her yellow jersey and win the final victory in the Tour of Greater Montreal tonight in Terrebonne, a Montreal suburb. Regina Schleicher (Safi-Pasta Zara Manhattan) won the stage, outsprinting Norwegian Anita Valen (S.A.T.S.) and 20-year old Laura Yoisten, of the Canadian Development team.  

The 15 first finishers tonight were credited with the same time -- 2 hours, 1 minute and 8 seconds, for an average speed of 39.62 km/h.  Arndt won overall with a slim 5-second lead over Anita Valen, who climbed up from fourth to second spot tonight, and a 10-second lead over third-place Canadian Lyne Bessette (Quark). 

Genesis Scuba won the team general classification, 16 seconds in front of Team RONA.  The Terrebonne stage, raced on a 10-kilometre course, offers no serious difficulty and always ends in a massive sprint. Arndt started this last stage of the Tour with an 11-second lead over Dede Demet Barry and 12-second over Lyne Bessette. With a possibility of 19 bonus seconds for any one rider, between the intermediary sprints and the stage win, the race was far from over.   

Petra Rossner, Arndt’s teammate and one of the best sprinters in the world, won the three intermediary sprints – and a total of 9 bonus seconds – thus minimizing the take for the contenders. It then behooved Arndt to prevent any serious break to form. She had to chase herself several attempts to leave the pack. The race was not particularly aggressive, but a few riders attacked several times. Among those who did were Erinne Willock (RONA), Amy Moore (Quark), Arantzazu Azpiroz (Spain) and especially Lyne Bessette, who tried in vain to generate a break during the last 20 kilometres. But each time the pack prevented anything to materialize.  

Regina Schleicher won the final sprint. “I knew I could win that, she said. My teammate Diana (Ziliute) led me out from the last turn, shortly after the 200-metre mark. Then I passed Anita at the last moment.”  

For her part, Arndt was as relieved as she was happy. “We made it”, she said, referring to her minimal team. I’m cooked in my head. Small gaps like that are tough on the nerves. Anita was making up seconds in the sprints, but my teammates were amazing.”  

“I love this race, she said about the Tour of Greater Montreal. I love the Little Italy criterium, with so many people watching, here in Terrebonne too, it’s really fun.”
