Prologue

Fontaines - Chaix, Individual TT, 4.4km

 

Race Writeup

Diana Ziliute (Safi) took advantage of an early start and took the lead in the 2009 Route de France. Increasing headwinds on the point-to-point course made it harder for those opting a later start. Zvetlana Bubnenkova (Fenixs) was second and Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (Team Columbia), who won the prologue in 2008 was third. Defending Champion, Luise Keller (Team Columbia) finished 29 seconds behind the winner.

Tiffany Cromwell (Australian National Team) continued a strong European campaign be taking the young rider jersey with her fourth place ride overall (at 8 seconds).

Teams are provided with the order of start, which is then repeated for each their team members. Thus, riders and managers are able to decide on their preferred start times within the constraints of the order given to the teams throughout.
