Another time on the podium…
The victory was taken by Emma Pooley who did a strong race and solowon her second world cup of the year.
On the second last lap I had a flat tire, but with the help from my teammates (Paulina who gave me her frontwheel and Ludevine who waited for me) I was fast back to the group.
On the last lapÂ Me, Marianne Vos (DSB Bank), Grace Verbeke (Lotto-Belisol), Nicole Cook (Great Britain) and Ruth Corset (Australia) got away, we were working good together but Pooley was nowhere to be seen…
To have a chance to beat Vos in the sprint I didnÂ´t take a turn for the last 5km. And with theÂ hard wind on the last kilometre attacking was not an option… Coming into the sprintÂ Vos was still to fast for me and with her taking 2nd place the World CupÂ´s jerseyÂ will beÂ on her shouldersÂ in NÃ¼rnberger.
Now a good nights sleep, tomorrow we go to Saint-Amand-Montrond for Trophee dÂ´Or that starts on Tuesday.
