Post Race Comments

Chloe Hosking (HTC Columbia) finally wins her first professional race, Im so happy to have finally won a race, said Hosking. I was beginning to think I didnt have speed anymore.

With the field only separated by seconds after the prologue that took place earlier in the day, time bonus seconds became a major feature in the 28 lap criterium.

We decided not to focus on time bonus seconds however, said Team Director Rene Wenzel. We wanted to concentrate on the stage win, knowing that we still have a few days of racing remaining to focus on the overall.

The plan worked well because Chloe could go into the final sprint a little fresher than the other sprinters. Im really happy with the way the team raced to support Chloe to her first professional win. Chloe has been doing a great job this year supporting Ina [Teutenberg] and learning from her in the bigger races. Its great for her to take the responsibility here and come out of it with a win.
