Stage 2 - Teutenberg makes it two in a row

Sacile-Riese Pio X 130 km

 

Race Writeup - Brief

Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (HTC Columbia) sprinted to victory in the second stage of the Giro. Giorgia Bronzini (Gauss RDZ Ormu) was second ahead of Marianne Vos (Netherlands).

The second stage from Sacile to Rie Pio X covered 130km of relatively low lying terrain. Roxanne Knetemann (Netherlands) and Natalia Boyarskaya (Fenixs - Petrogradets) broke away together in the early part of the race. They were caught just before the first climb.  The climb after 60km, was not steep enough to really break up the race however Greta Triere (S.C. Michela Fanini Record Rox) broke away and had over a minute advantage before she reached Riese Pio X to complete the three circuits. With 12 kilometres to go, Greta Triere (S.C. Michela Fanini Record Rox) had over a minute advantage. The sprinters teams took over to reel in the lone rider in the closing kilometres. 

With the bunch together going into the sprint, there was a crash at 500m to go. This saw Sharon Laws (Cervelo Test Team) hit the deck hard with a number of other riders. 

Teutenberg's win was her 18th of the season. She was the fastest in the bunch sprint that decided stage two from Sacile to Riese Pio X, a victory which simultaneously confirmed her overall lead.

Post Race Comments


Ronny Lauke (Sport Director, HTC Columbia) played a tactical race,  "We had some pretty clear tactics today. We wanted to win the stage and keep the race lead at least up until Sunday's time trial and that's exactly what we've managed to do," said  Lauke.  "One rider made a long individual breakaway but we managed to keep the race under control and with ten kilometres to go we'd brought her back."

"Ina's teammates set her up perfectly for a the finish, a 300-metre straightaway with a slight downhill, and she finished off their good work without any problems at all.  The team now go into the time trial feeling motivated and confident and we're pretty sure of a great result."

Sunday's stage is a 16.9 kilometre individual time trial, and Lauke is optimistic will see HTC-Columbia's riders battling for a third victory in as many days. "We've got three national time trial champions here - Evelyn [Stevens - USA], Judith [Ardnt - GER] and Emilia [Fahlin - SWE] so we've got a lot of different options. And Ina's got us off to the best of starts, too."
