Stage 1 -Wils wins opening stage

Roden 109.9km

 

Race Writeup

Kirsten Wild (Argos-Shimano) won the opening stage of the 16th Holland Ladies tour, in  a bunch sprint.Elizabeth Armitstead (Boels Dolmans) was second ahead of Trixi Worrack (Specialized-lululemon). 

Wild did not take the leaders jersey, that is held by Armitstead after she secured bonus seconds during the stage. 

The race was an attacking one, with the bunch splitting into several groups at points as the race passed over gravel roads but in the end it all came back together for a bunch sprin. Wild was in a good position and finished off the stage with time to celebrate. 

Comments

Kirsten Wild (Argos-Shimano) was very happy with her win, “Today was great, I really enjoyed it,” said an elated Wild. “The sand sections made it look like Strada Bianche and it was spectacular to ride over. The bunch was at full speed on these sections which made it tough though.

“Nearer the end the team were able to control everything and prepare the sprint for me. In the final corner I went full gas and once I started nobody could overtake me.

“I am please with the whole performance today. I have done more specific sprint training after the Lotto Tour so I knew I was ready for this race.
