Stage 4 - Kirsten Wild - fastest in sprint, Bras keeps lead

Diepenheim - Diepenheim, 97km

Race Writeup

Kirsten Wild (Cervelo Test Team) won the bunch sprint ahead of Marianne Vos (Nederland Bloiet) and Girogia Bronzini (Merida/Gauss).

The bunch was well controlled on the fourth stage of the Holland Ladies Tour. Wit 5 laps of the circuit, an early break that included 18 riders was allowed to gain a small 50 second advantage up to 50km. Included in the group were, Leontien.nl with 3 riders, Nederland Bloeit with 2, Sarah Duester (Cervelo Test Team) and Shellly Olds (USA) were also in the group. The peloton Merida/Gauss got some help from HTC Columbia to close the gap to the leaders. By 60km the race was all together as the peloton navigated the circuit. Despite a number of attempts to break away, the peloton remained together with 15km to go. 

The speed at the front of the bunch as they approached the final stages of the race was high, which caused a split in the bunch. With 3km to go the lead group was bunched up and jostling for position.

Wild was too strong and won the bunch sprint ahead of Vos, Bronzini, Emma Johannson (Red Sun) and Olds

Post Race Comments

Kirsten Wild (Cervelo Test Team) enjoyed her win on stage 4 of the Holland Ladies Tour. “The breakaway was a good situation for us today as it included Sarah Düster, one of the highest ranked GC riders in the group and then everything came together and we were prepared for the sprint,” said Wild, following today’s victory. “Sarah and Charlotte Becker did a perfect lead out. I came pretty early to the front with 275 meters to go but I was able to hold it. I am really happy to win a stage here in my home race against the best sprinters in the world. Everything had to go perfect and today was that day,” added Wild.
