Stage 1 -Teutenberg sprints to victory

Iurreta - Matiena, 97.1km

 

Race Writeup

Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (Specialized-lululemon) won the bunch sprint from Shelly Olds (AA Drink) and Teutenberg's lead out, Trixi Worrack (Specialized-lululemon). Annemiek van Vleuten (Rabo Women) was fourth. 

The sprint came at the end of a 'twitchy' run-in to the finish, just at the same time as a light rain turned the urban roads into a virtual ice rink. The first 80 kilometres of the stage were uneventful, with only one serious break. German, Anna Bianca Schnitzmeier, broke away solo for about eight kilometres in the first third of the race.  

Comments:

Ina Yoko Teutenberg (Specialised Lululemon) was very happy with securing another win in 2012, "It's obviously a great way to start the Tour," said Teutenberg. "We were all looking forward to a solid four days of racing here and so far it's going well. The final sprint was technical and wet and pretty scary but the girls lead me perfectly into it with Trixi doing another perfect final lead out."
