Stage 3- Wild wins again

Gieten - Gieten, 108km

 

Race Writeup

Kirstin Wild (Cervelo Test Team) cemented her lead after three stages with a solid sprint ahead of  Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (Team Columbia-HTC) and Marianne Vos (DSB Bank)

A early break created by Christina Becker (Equipe Nurnberger) split up the bunch a little before it came back together in the cold rain soaked stage. The pace remained high and Teutenberg managed to get in another break on the tough cobbled sections. Chantal Beltman (Team Columbia-HTC) monitored the front of the bunch for her team. Beltman will retire from racing at the end of the Holland Ladies Tour and will be a big loss to the team. 

The break that managed to form included Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (Team Columbia-HTC) and Cervelo Test Team's Sarah Duster along with 7 other riders. Equipe Nurnberger had made the break with Charlotte Becker and she drove the pace at the front of the group of 27. DSB who had missed the break worked hard to close the gap. Marianne Vos (DSB Bank) who held the sprinters jersey at the start of stage 3 led the chase to the leaders. 

The whole DSB Bank team moved to the front and chased the front group. They were just a few seconds behind the leaders before the final time over the cobbled section. 

Teuteberg led the lead group of 5 through the cobbles for the second time, Duster, Andre Visser (DSB Bank) were among the group. 

Irene van den Broek (Leontien.nl) led the charge at the front of the chasing group watched by Linda Villumsen (Team Columbia HTC). The gap was closed but the lead bunch was down to 20 riders as they approach the finish line and this enabled Wild to launch her sprint. Teutenberg and Vos were on her wheel but on the finish line Wild was faster than Teutenberg and Vos.

Wild goes into the 4th stage eight seconds ahead of Marianne Vos and 19 seconds ahead of Ellen van Dijk (Columbia HTC).

Marianne Vos (DSB Bank) took over the young rider competition lead from van Dijk.

Post Race Comments

Kirstin Wild (Cervelo Test Team)earlier this week won the first stage of the Holland Ladies Tour. "It’s going very well, the victory from the first stage gave me a lot of confidence.'' And, though she had a hard day she still had enough power to win again. "It was really hard today," Wild commented after the stage, "but not just for me, for everyone. My position was there at the right moment and maybe I'm able to deal with the bad weather better than some of the other riders. I also had two team mates in the lead group along me and they made sure that I saved myself for the sprint."

Jens Zemke, (Sports Director) said "Our trio (Wild, Decroix and Düster) were ahead of the first part of the peloton until the finish," said Zemke. "Many riders finished late today because of the heavy weather conditions with lots of rain and wind. Early on in the race the peloton had already split into different groups. We came into the finale with a group of 20 riders including our three. Lieselot Decroix did a great job in the final kilometres to bring all the groups back and in the last kilometer Sarah Düster helped Kirsten into a perfect position and Kirsten was able to win."
