Stage 1

Winschoten, 109.6km

 

Race Writeup

Kirsten Wild (Argos Shimano) won the first stage of the 2013 Energiewacht tour around the northern region of Groningen. Ellen van Dijk (Specialized Lululemon) was second ahead of Iris slappendel (Rabobank Liv/Giant).

The race was active and really aggressive for the first 70km. A leading group of 23 riders that included a good representation of the key teams, Wild, the only representative from  Team Argos Shimano, with Ellen Van Dijk, Trixi Worrack, Lisa Brennauer, Carmen Small and Katie Colclough (Specialized Lululemon), Iris Slappendel, Annemiek Van Vleuten, Lucinda Brand and Sanne Van Paassen (Rabobank Liv/Giant), Loes Gunnewijk and Australian Road Champion, Gracie Elvin (Orica AIS), Adrie Visser  and Elizabeth Armitstead (Boels Dolmans), Anna Van Der Breggen, Christine Majerus, Maaike Polspoel and Evelyn Arys (Sengers Ladies),  Danielle King, Lauren Kitchen and Laura Trott (Wiggle Honda) and Marta Tagliaferro and Tatiana Antoshina (MCipollini Giordana) made the break group.

Unfortunately on the way into Winschoten, the leading group had a gap of 22 sconds. The chase group led by Hitec who missed the break, went off course. The officials decides to stop the lead group, bring the chase back onto the course and restart the race.

Marred by its second incident, a river road bridge was raised, which again disrupted the chase group and again the leaders had to be slowed to allow the gap to reform back to the original gap.

The issues did not stop there. On the way into Winschoten to start the final lap of the circuit a number of vehicles on the course caused concern for the riders and they protested by stopping at the finish line to discuss this with the commissaires. Finally, with 13km to go the race was restarted and  with a gap of 22 seconds  the chase lost enthusiasm.

Wild went early and secured the sprint against the odds.

Comments

Kirsten Wild (Argos Shimano) had to find a way to profit from the race,  "It was not easy because I as an individual against a few big teams had to compete hard. Eventually the attack is the best defense, said Wild.
