Comments

Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (Specialised Lululemon) was happy with her first European win of 2012. "We were well represented in the break and I could therefore make sure I was well positioned for the sprint. I felt good and still had lots speed at the finish. It's nice to win again on European soil,'' said the experienced German

Marianne Vos (Stichting Rabo) was pleased with her form especially after her recent bout of illness, "This winter I invested a lot in the road season and I started well. Being sick last weekend was not good  but I am ok now. Of course I want to try to win here, but the team time trial is crucial. But you also see that it is a matter of paying attention every day in the Netherlands.''
