Round 6- Marianne Vos sprinted to victory to win the 6th World Cup and regain overall lead. 

GP Ciudad de Valladolid - 122.9km

 

Race Writeup

Marianne Vos (Nederland  Bloeit) sprinted to victory ahead of Rosella Cavolli  (SC MCipollini Giambenini) and Emma Johansson (Hitec) to win the 6th round of the World Cup GP Ciudad de Valladolid and secure her place as overall leader with 260 points. 

The course led the peloton out on a big loop to the south-west of Valladolid, up to the north by Tordesillas and Castromon, before it returned to Valladolid to after 91km of racing, to complete five 6.6km relatively flat local laps. There were number of climbs to break up the race. The first had a 700m altitude, while the highest point in the race was at 850 meters. 

After 80 km of racing the group were all together. As the peloton hit the first circuit, the peloton was in three groups. After 97km , Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (HTC Hightroad) attacked the group and managed to gain a small advantage of 10 seconds. She was caught but immediately a counter attack went. Oceania Champion, Australian Shara Gillow and making her return to racing having retired in 2009 was Fabiana Luberini (SC MCipollini Giambenini). The pair quickly gained a 20 second advantage. 

With 101km of racing completed, the escape was neutralised. A leading group of 20 riders approached the final stages of the race, the key riders in terms of the World Cup standings were in the group. 

The remaining peloton chased to close the gap in the leading group and managed to reformed a leading group of 60 riders formed. With one lap to go this had split again with nearly 30 left in the group. 

With 3 km to go, 8 riders escaped from the peloton. They included Marianne Vos (Nederland Bloeit), Emma Johansson (Hitec), Maaike Polspoel (Topsport Vlanderan). Elena Berlato (Top Girls), Judith Arndt (HTC Highroad), Lizzie Armitstead and Noemi Cantele (Garmin Cervelo) and Rosella Cavolli (SC MCipollini Giambenini). They took a small lead and could not be caught by the chase group.

Vos jumped early and secured her third World Cup win of the season. The Dutchwoman will now wear the rainbow jersey in the Open de Suede Vargarda TTT on the 29th July in the team time trial, for the second year on a row. 

Garmin Cervelo may be a new look team for 2011 but this does not mean they won't be looking for another World Cup win this season, although there's much deeper pride at stake. The team, in its various incarnations, has never been beaten in a World Cup TTT.
