Cervélo - Wild wins again at Rabo Ster Zeeland
Kirsten Wild has also won the second stage of the RaboSter Zeeland, and like yesterday another TestTeam rider today, Charlotte Becker (GER) finished in second. Third place went to Martine Bras (NED-Gauss RDZ Ormu-Colnago).
“We used the strength of the team today and I think it was a great Cervélo show, once again,” said an elated Kirsten Wild, following today’s stage win. “At the end there was just a small group left and the girls did a great lead out for me. Charlotte was the last in the train and was able to finish second. Tomorrow’s stage is a hard one, but I think we have some cards to play so we will try to keep the jersey in the team.”
“It could have been a hard stage because of the wind but it was not that bad,” said Egon van Kessel, Sports Director. “There was a break early on and it came back. Finally, there was a break in the last 20km that included all of our riders. Marianne Vos (NED-Nederland Bloeit) started the sprint, but again Kristen won it and Charlotte Becker came second. Tomorrow’s third and final stage will also be hard, but we are in good shape. Kirsten also won a couple of the intermediate sprints and is in good position now to win the race.”
