Stage 1 - Teutenberg wins bunch sprint

Nuenen "van Gogh Village" - Gerwen, 112,2km

 

Race Writeup

HTC-Columbia's Ina-Yoko Teutenberg has powered to her 22nd victory of the 2010 season in the Holland Ladies Tour, narrowly defeating Netherlands rider Marianne Vos in a bunch sprint.
Teutenberg's victory in the opening stage, a 112.4-kilometre stage in the city of Neunen Gerwen, also earned the HTC-Columbia rider the overall lead.

Esra Tromp (Batavus) and Amy Pieters (Merida/Gauss) broke away and stayed away for 60km in this first stage of the 13th HLT. The pair worked well together and gained a maximum gap of two minutes over the bunch.

With over 160 starters from twenty eight teams, the large peloton negotiated the narrow Nord Brabant roads with surprisingly few incidents or accidents. 

The race came together in the final 30 kilometres, on the first of three laps of a thirteen kilometre finishing circuit. A small crash involved Teutenberg's HTC-Columbia teammate Evelyn Stevens. She was unlucky enough to crash in the race, about 20 kilometres from the finish, injuring her elbow.  As a precaution, the American rider was taken to a nearby hospital for an x-ray and exam, which concluded to be clear of fractures. The inevitable sprint finish was taken by Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (HTC-Columbia women) from Marianne Vos (Nederland Bloeit) and Kirsten Wild (Cervelo Test Team).

Post Race Comments


Rene Wenzel (HTC-Columbiaq6 Sports Director) was very happy with another win from his top sprinter, "Ina was a little uncertain of her condition because she hasn't raced for a while, but she proved today she's in great form," said Wenzel "Once it became clear it was going to be a bunch sprint, we worked hard for Ina to make sure she had her chance.  It was a very tricky, technical stage, with a very technical finish that strung the riders out and the sprint was very close, but Ina got it."

Teutenberg took third overall in the same race last year, in which she also won a stage.   Wenzel commented, "Ina has a five-second advantage, which is pretty slim, but last year the race was won by just a couple of seconds so we'll do what we can.  Looking further ahead, too, to the World Championships this September, this is a very encouraging result for Ina."
