Post Race Comments

Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (HTC Columbia) was very happy to be claiming another leader's Maglia Rosa jersey. Teutenberg's win was the sprinter's 17th victory of the 2010 season.  "Last year I won one stage here at the Giro Donne, and I feel really positive about surpassing that here this year," commented the HTC-Columbia rider.  "I'm really motivated to defend the lead tomorrow."  

Ronny Lauke (HTC Columbia Sports director) was pleased to be on the winning team again, "It's always great to start with a victory," Lauke.  "It was a short first stage, and the team is very motivated for success.  We were seeking a fast pace and Ina was on top of it.   She won by a bike length.  Everyone is very positive and confident that we will have a successful Tour."
