Stage 3-  Annemiek van Vleuten in top form to win Stage 3

Bonneval - Cloyes Sur Le Loir  115.8km

 

Race Writeup

Annemiek van Vleuten (Nederland Bloiet) rode to victory in stage 3 to secure her position as overall leader. Sarah Mustonen (Hitec Products UCK) was second ahead of Lizzi Armitstead (Cervelo Test Team).

van Vleuten sprinted to victory from the break away group to increase her overall lead to 21 seconds. The group of twelve riders formed early on in the race and quickly gained over a one minute advantage.

The group included good representation from the top teams which ensured its success. Despite a crash Judith Arndt (HTC Columbia) managed to hold on for fourth place. Charlotte Becker (Cervelo Test Team) was also involved in the crash but could not hold onto the lead group in the final stages.

Canadian, Anne Samplonius, was a surprise member of the breakaway given her lone attack on stage 2. The other members included race leader,Van Vleuten and Loes Gunnewijk (Nederland Bloeit), Mustonen (Hitec Products Uck), Sarah Düster, Charlotte Becker and Armitstead (Cervelo Test Team),  Judith Arndt, Ina Yoko Teutenberg and Adrie Visser (HTC Columbia), Martine Bras (Gauss RDZ Ormu), Olga Zabelinskaja (Safi - Pasta Zara),  Amanda Spratt (Australian National Team) and Tatiana Antoshina (Team Valdarno).

Given the make up of the group it was no surprise that it was able to form a big lead. Suffering in terms of her overall position, was Marianne Vos (Nederland Bloiet), she lost 9 places in the overall GC.

In the final stages of the race the effort from Visser and Teutenberg to get Arndt back into the race after the crash, took its toll and they pair finished 2 minutes back.

Armitstead (Cervelo Test Team) maintained her strong lead in the Young Rider classification with her position in the break and third place on the stage.
