Stage 1

Chateauguay, 85.5km, 1 June 2009

 

Race Writeup

For the third consecutive year, the town of Châteauguay played host to the world’s top female cyclists during the first stage of the Tour du Grand Montréal.

 

The race was fast paced with the bunch averaging 43 km/h on the flat, 5.7 km circuit, covering 85.5 km in 15 laps. The tall and powerful Dutch sprinter, Kirsten Wild (Cervelo Test Team) used her power and sprinted to victory ahead of American Lauren Tamayo (Team Tibco) and Martine Bras (Selle italia-Ghezzi). wild completed the course in a time of 1 hour 58 minutes 42 seconds.

 

Light rain and cool temperatures made for a challenging race, while a multiple rider crash caused a gap in the peloton. The bunch were controlled by the big professional teams, Cervelo Test Team, Team Columbia High Road and Team Tibco for most of the race.

 

Four jerseys are at stake during the Tour du Grand Montréal: the yellow jersey (Quebec) and the sprint jersey (Argon 18), both being worn by Wild after stage 1, as well as the Cheese’s of Switzerland top rider under-23 jersey, worn by Luxemburg’s Nathalie Lamborelle (Unique-Elk) The queen of the mountain jersey (Swiss International Air Lines) will be handed out following tomorrow’s stage.

The second stage will take place tomorrow in Granby
