Cervélo - Tour de l'Aude: Armistead wins and takes the leader jersey


Elisabeth Armistead scored the second victory in a row for Cervélo TestTeam at the Tour de l'Aude. The 21-year-old rider from Great Britain finished first in today's 117 km race first stage around Rieux Minervois, France, taking over the leader jersey from her teammate Regina Bruins (Ned).

The wind played a big role today enabling 11 riders to go into a break away, which was not chased back by the peloton until the finish line. At the end of the race, Elisabeth Armistead had the biggest reserves and claimed victory in the sprint ahead of Chantal Blaak (Ned) and Adrie Visser (Ned).

"Another victory and another leader jersey today, that is just amazing," exclaimed Egon van Kessel, Sport Director, Cervélo TestTeam. "In this first stage, a breakaway of eleven riders including Lizzie Armistead broke away coming to the finish with an advantage of about 1:20 over the peloton. Lizzie did a great job and won the sprint. We totally fulfilled our goal and didn't lose too much energy in defending the leader’s jersey. Tomorrow we will race in the team time trial, and we go into that with full confidence. We have trained this race format a lot and I believe we can make it on the podium."

The 2nd stage tomorrow is over a 34.5 km course around Clermont l'Hérault. The course is a little bit hilly and technical and should suit the riders of Cervélo TestTeam well.
