Stage #4: 2,2 km timtrail in the dark and start at 22:04… strange but now I tried that too It felt ok, but I could not get my heart rate so high, maybe itÂ´s normal on such late hour?!
Today’s stage was a bit better, or at least normal. 101 km and 5 climbs that had to be done, 4 short ones and one from 6km…
Team Sweden and especially Sara did an awesome job today and I think she went with 90% of the attacks So I had a good ride into the last climb and then it was time for me to suffer!
I followed Guderzo and Arndt when they sat up the speed and in the beginning it felt good but less than 1km from the top I had to let go… After a long descend on wet roads we got back to the two in front and formed a group of six riders.
Marianne won the sprint ahead of Arndt and me on 3rd place,
|1||Marianne Vos (Ned) Nederland Bloeit||2:39:19|
|2||Judith Arndt (Ger) HTC Columbia Women|
|3||Emma Johansson (Swe) Sweden|
|4||Malgorzta Jasinska (Pol) Team System Data||0:00:02|
|5||Tatiana Guderzo (Ita) Team Valdarno||0:00:03|
Tomorrow last stage and then Norway for a night before heading towards Australia!
