Stage 2 - Arndt climbs to victory and into overall

Mattarello - Termon 86 km

Race Writeup

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.

Jens 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."

Seventh on the stage, Teutenberg has retained the points jersey. Zemke noted, "Ina was really impressive, she was the last of the HTC-Highroad riders to stay with Judith. Her climbing is getting better and better."

The final stage of Trentino is seventy-two kilometers long and very hilly, running from Castel Thun to Cles, and Zemke is optimistic about Arndt's chances of winning outright.

"She's got a seven second advantage, so it's up to us to defend our lead and the rest to attack us, which is a good place to be in."

"Plus our riders all rode very well today, and they will protect Judith as best they can tomorrow, too  - and she's already proved she's in great shape."


Zemke says it will be slightly more complicated to deal with the sixty kilos of apples the team has won, "Today they gave us a special prize which was Judith's weight in apples, and while it's wonderful to have it,  we're not sure what we're going to do with it all. Sixty kilos is a lot of fruit to have in the back of a team car!"
