Stage 4- Hanka Kupfernagel wins TT, Zabelinskaja in lead by 2 minutes 55 seconds.

Schleiz, 23.3km, Individual TT, 23 July 2009

 

Race Writeup

Hanka Kupfernagel (German National Team) won by 10 seconds ahead of fellow German Regina Bruins (Cervelo Test Team) and Yellow jersey wearer Olga Zabelinskaja (Saft-Pasta Zara). 

Conditions were considerably cooler than the first three stages. Max 20 degrees and unfortunately for the top 15 riders, the rain arrived making conditions challenging. 

Kupfernagel started early and had the benefit of riding in her home region. The yellow jersey Zabelinskaja looked strong on her ride and finished well ahead of her closest rivals. Edita Puchinskaite (Gauss) moved herself into second place overall ahead of Noemi Cantele (HTC Columbia).

Post Race Comments

Hanka Kupfernagel (German National Team) was a very happy winner. "I did not feel good at the end of yesterdays stage. the last 40km were so hard. It was good that is was such a late start today and it gave me time to recover. I trained on the course last week and I knew where I could push hard. I have to say a big thank you to my massage therapist and team support from the car. They kept me going. I am so happy, " said Kupfernagel.

Olga Zabelinskaja (Safi-Pasta Zara) was very happy after the fourth stage. She now holds a 2 minute 55 second lead over Edita Puchinskaite (Gauss RDZ Ormu) and Noemi Cantele (HTC Columbia). "Today I felt good. I tried hard and I am very happy, "said Zabelinskaja.
