Stage 2 - Wild wins bunch kick

Camel Race Track - Al Khor Corniche, 96km

 

Race Writeup

Kirsten Wild (Argos-Shimano) outsprinted Trixi Worrack and Ellen van Dijk (Specialized - lululemon).  Overnight leader Chloe Hosking (Hitec) ensured she made the break to finish in the leading group to hold on to the lead.

The second stage was aggressive and despite having five riders in the final break, Orica-AIS were unable to fully control the race.

An early break that included  Xiu Jie Jiang (China Chongming-Giant), Audrey Cordon (France) and Malgorzata Jasinska (MCipollini) managed to gain nearly 9 minutes advantage over the peloton by the first sprint (38.5km) but as soon as the road turn right out of the head wind and into a typical desert crosswind the break advantage dropped rapidly.

In an attempt to bring the race back together, five Orica riders, Gracie Elvin, Tiffany Cromwell, Loes Gunnewijk, Emma Johansson and Amanda Spratt,  moved to the front and created an echelon that split the peloton. In the nine-rider move Wild, Hosking, Worrack and van Dijk joined the Orica-AIS team in the split that formed. With a rider in the leading break, MCipollini  marshalled the front,while Wiggle-Honda tried to get organised to try to get their sprinters Rochelle Gilmore and Giorgia Bronzini into the chasing bunch. They could not close the gap.  

At the front of the chase, Orica-AIS set a blistering pace and managed to close five minutes off the gap to the leaders in 10km, When the break was finally caught  Jasinska was the only one of the leaders that managed to jump onto the group of nine  when it sped past.

Johansson who has transitioned over the last 12 months  from a pure sprinter to more of an all rounder  worked with her new team to try to break up the lead group t avoid an all out sprint.

In the end, the tall Wild moved past Hosking and the Specialized-Lululemon pairing of Elen van Dijk and Trixi Worrack with 10m to go to take the win to claim victory at Al Khor Corniche for the second year in succession. The victory moved Wild to third place overall and also gave her a record tally of four stage victories in the Tour of Qatar.
