Stage 2

Granby  104.06km

 

Race Writeup

Breaking away from escape companions, the winner of the World Cup last Saturday, Judith Arndt, won the second stage of the Tour of Montreal on Tuesday.

In a nail-biting finish, the German went out on her own with 5km to go and managed to hold off the chasing bunch by a handful of seconds. 

The bunch sprint was won by Regina Schleicher (Équipe Nürnberger) from Oenone Wood (High Road).

Suzanne De Goede retained the sprinters jersey, whilst Anne Samplonius (Canada) was a popular newcomer to the over-35 jersey from Tanja Hennes.

Equal on time, with Arndt on GC, Schleicher will wear the yellow jersey for the time trial.

Post Race Comments

Judith Arndt -  "We all raced really well together. In the end I finished only five second ahead of the bunch. It really hurt.

"Now I hope I can have a good time trial tomorrow," said Arndt.

Petra Rossner - (Team Director) "We raced aggressively from the start. We were in every break except one and it paid off."
