Comments

Ronny Lauke (HTC Highroad Sport Director) was very happy with his teams performance, "It was a flat circuit today," said, Lauke, "A very simple course that came down to setting as strong of a pace as we could and maintaining it until the end."

"Our plan was to accelerate hard at the start and keep pace steady. We had Judith (Arndt), Ina (Teutenberg) and Charlotte (Becker) pulling on the long stretches and our younger riders leading out the short sections."

"We have been on a bit of a winning streak over the past ten days (Ardeche) and we plan to keep the momentum here in Tuscany."
