Stage 2 - Arndt climbs to victory and into overall
Mattarello - Termon 86 km
HTC-Highroad's Judith Arndt has followed up team-mate Ina-Yoko Teutenberg's win in the opening stage of the Giro di Trentino in Italy with her own victory, twenty four hours later.
Arndt climbed to victory ahead of Tatiana Guderzo (SC MCCipolini Giambenini) and Emma Pooley (Garmin) and now holds a 10 second lead going into the final stage.
Pooley made the decisive attack of the day and managed to stay away until the last climb. Arndt and Guderzo manage to break away from the small chasing group of five riders that included Emma Johansson (Hitec), Rossella Callovi (SC MCCipolini Giambenini) and Rasa Leleivyte (Vaiano Solaristech). Arndt and Guderzo managed to catch and pass Pooley in the closing kilometres of the race.
Post Race Comments
Judith Arndt (HTC Highroad) claimed her fifth win of the season at the end of a mountainous eighty-six kilometer trek from Matarrello to Termon, simultaneously taking over as race leader from Teutenberg. “I am very satisfied with today, after the victory yesterday, it is good for me to have the win," said Arndt.
Zemke (HTC-Highroad sport director) reflected on the teams
performance and Arndts win, "Judith was exactly where she needed to be all day, first winning an
intermediate sprint and getting the bonus seconds on offer, which was a
good sign, then playing her tactics very well on the last climb of the
stage," pointed out Jens Zemke, "She
and another rider caught [earlier breakaway] Emma Pooley on the last climb, then
Judith still had enough strength to go for and win the sprint."
