Tour de Yorkshire (UCI 1.1) 29.April 2017

We had a win to defend from 2016, but today was a totally different course. With Katrine as the protected rider, the team did an exceptional job to keep her out of trouble until Trapping Hill, a monster climb with the last 1.7 km at 12%.  Katrine got in a select group and sprinted to 6th place, her best ever result in a one day UCI road race. Emilie got in next group on Elisabeth Deignan (Boels) won solo.

Liege-Bastogne-Liege (UCI 1.WWT) 23.April 2017

Another first time WWT race for Women. It was a matter of survival, Elizabeth Deignan called it the hardest coiurse ever after the race. Anna vd Breggen (Boels Dolmas) took her 3d WWT win in a week, while our Katrine took her first WWT points by finishing 20. Also Vita had a good race and finished 24.
Team: Nina, Vita, Susanne, Katrine, Cecilie, Charlotte

Omloop Van Borsele (UCI 1.1) 22.April 2017

It was a day where we raced very well together as a team. We tried to chase down Markus/Bujak-break, but couldnt. Markus (WMN3) went on to win. In the final we raced for Susanne who finished 5th, and Nina finished 6th. Slightly dissapointing not to get a podium on such a good day, but still good results.

Tour of Thailand (UCI 2.1) 8.-10.April 2017

For the second time in 3 years we visited the friendly Thailand and as last time we were really close to win the tour. Despite a bad start where we lost Nina Kessler with stomach problems on the stage designated for her, Tone pulled a good leadout for Cecilie to sprint to 6th place. On the second stage, Miriam finished 5th. On the last queen stage, we lost Ingvild due to the heat, but a long breakaway with Tone proved successful, as Miriam and Cecilie bridged to the group, whereby Miriam rode away with 4 other riders. One rider attacked from the group, Somrat (Thailand), with a big advantage enough to win the GC. Miriam attacked from the other 4 with 4 km to go and cruised in to her first podium this year, a second place on the stage which proved enough to 3d place in GC. Cecilie ended on a 9th place and Tone 21th overall.  Miriam also took the Queen of Mountain Jersey.
Team: Tone, Nina, Miriam, Ingvild, Cecilie

Healthy Ageing Tour (UCI 2.2) 5.-9.April 2017

A major success for the team in this stage race, although not in the GC. The TTs and TTTs made us out of contention in the first 2 days. After that it was just positive. Fantastic teamwork, 6th place on Emilie on stage 3, 2d on Susanne on stage 4 (Our and her first UCI-podium this year), followed by our first victory of the season on stage 5 by Emilie. She blessed the team as soon as she finished for the good help to win this stage. Our best rider in the GC was Thea Thorsen on 31th place.
Team: Emilie, Thea, Ilona, Katrine, Susanne, Vita
