Comments

Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (HTC Highroad) was please to get another win under her belt, "One girl got ahead at the beginning and held a break with a max of two and a half minutes. We pulled her in at about forty kilometers."

 

"After the break was caught the peloton stayed together pretty much until the end, and we decided to stay out front and make it a hard race,"  said Teutenberg.

"The girls did a great job controlling and setting me up for the finish," Teutenberg continued, "I was out front for the last corner, and after I came out of it I took off with about two hundred meters to go," she added.
