Emma Pooley (Cervelo Test Team) continued her winning ways today with a first stage victory at the Giro di Trentino. Alessandra D'Ettorre (Top Girls) finished second in the bunch sprint, with Rasa Leleivyte (SAFI PASTA ZARA) third. 

After 25km, Pooley was in the lead, together with Noemi Cantele (HTC - Columbia Women). After about 10km, Pooley dropped Cantele and arrived on the top of the Mendola, the 1st category climb, with a four minute lead. After the decent of 20 km she arrived with a significant gap at the finish.

Comments

Emma Pooley (Cervelo Test Team) had a convincing win on the first stage of the 2010 Giro di Trentino, "It was a really long climb, 45 km but not really steep," explained Emma Pooley, after the stage. "On the climb I went in the lead with Cantele but she didn't work and was just on my wheel. The first time I attacked, she was able to follow. But with the second attack I was able to drop her. I wanted to make the gap as big as possible because I knew that she is good on the downhill and I didn't want to take to many risks with the Giro d' Italia in mind. Once again our team is really strong, and any one of my teammates could also be in my position today. We will defend the yellow jersey now and try to win this race."
