Race 3 - Annemiek van Vlueten wins going one better than World Cup.

Coervorden - Hoogeveen 138.5km

 

Race Writeup

Annemiek van Vlueten (Netherland Bloeit) went one better, in the third race in the Ronde van Drenthe event. Van Vlueten took third in the first race, second yesterday in the World Cup and today she went one better. A break including Van Vlueten and team mate Marianne Vos played the others in the break to secure the win for their team. In the sprint for second and third, Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (HTC Columbia) beat Kirstin Wild (Cervelo Test Team). 

The race stayed together, until just after the cobbled section when an attack from Wild to secure sprint points on the cobbles strung the bunch out. Cervelo Test Team, Netherland Bloeit and HTC Columbia set a high pace on the front of the bunch and in 10k the bunch had stretched it out into 4 groups. At 51km and the first time over the Col du VAM a leading group of 18 riders had formed and quickly gained a 35 second lead. It included Vos and van Vlueten, Emma Johansson and Mascha Pijnenborg (Red Sun), Alexis Rhodes (Australia), Lucy Martin (GBR), MArit Huisman (Batavus), Vicky Whitelaw and Grace Verbeke (Lotto Ladies), Lucinda Brand (Leontien NL) Teutenberg, with team mates, Kim Anderson, Chloe Hosking and Ellen van Dijk. Sarah Duester, Charlotte Becker, Sharon Laws and Wild (Cervelo Test Team) all made the break. At this point, there was a group of nine riders chasing and then the main bunch was over 3 minutes back. The decision was taken to pull the bunch before the race hit the short laps over the Col du Vam.

The leaders stayed together the first couple of times over the VAM. Then as the race climbed the VAM for the third time the leading group was down to 16 riders. Hosting and Laws had fallen back. Duester tried to attack and managed to get a 700m gap on the decent but could not get away. Vos, Johansson and Teutenberg all contributed to the chase.  

On the fourth time up the climb, Teutenberg moved to the left and attacked over the last 100 to the top and took with her 6 others. On the decent, the pace was high and the leading group quickly gained an advantage over the chasing group. With 15 km to go the leading group kept the tempo high to ensure no one could get away. . 

The race into Hoogeveen and the finish line was tense and relatively technical.With 3km to go Vos attacked and forced the group to chase, as soon as she was caught, Van Vlueten counter attacked with 1km to go. The final corner came 300m from the finish. Van Vlueten had a lead just ahead of the sprinting chasers.  Van Vlueten had time at the finish to raise her arm and count 1,2,3 as she crossed the line. Teutenberg had the better of Wild for second.
