Today was the last stage from the Holland Ladies Tour. 6 laps on a circuit around Valkenberg with finish on the topÂ off Cauberg. Felt already yesterday that my legs were coming back after the dip that I had on Wednesdays stage.
So today whenÂ a group of ten girls got away already on the second lap and gotÂ almost three minutes I thought that I might not getÂ a chance to try them out today. With Mascha in that group it was a perfect situation for the team, andÂ when the speed was put up on the second last lap we just had to follow. Marianne attacked on Cauberg going out for the last lapÂ and I could easily follow. Her chance to win the tour was big, if she could catch the first group… So with her team “DSB Bank”Â chasing I got a nice trip and with 4km to go we caught them back.Â Last time over the Cauberg and on the topÂ I was first one over the finishline Thanks to a good teamwork!
Nice to have my supporters there today aswell Sharon, Peter, Laura, Lukas, Ivan and Ria – THANKS!!Â Â
Tomorrow morning I go home to Norway, canÂ´t wait to spend some days with Martin!
