Tour de l'Aude 2007
Gruissan, Individual TT , 3.9km
The wind which has blown in the Aude region since at least Monday, when many teams arrived fresh from the Tour de Berne, was still forceful for hte prologue. One positive factor, though, was that hte sun came out and hte day was warm. Previous days during the week had been cold. Friday in Gruissan was definitely warm - the temperature reached the mid 20's'C.
Christiane Soeder started last in the time trial and finished (in) first (place). She was fastest by five seconds, over Hanka Kupfernagel and Dutch young (under 23) rider, Ellen van Dijk.
Defending champion, Amber Neben, snuck into the top ten, twelve seconds down on Soeder. World road race Champion, Marianne Vos finished seventh, 10 seconds behind the winner.
