Germany finished 10th and was therefore done, while Italy finished 7th and got to ride for better results next day. On second day Italy managed a new national record at 4’26”162 and advanced on the result list to a 6th.

Victory for Kirsten 

The first day of LToQ is done and with success for the girls of Hitec Products. The 97km stage was considered a preview of the World Championships course in October. It had two intermediate sprints where the riders could fight for 3″, 2″ and 1″ bonus seconds. Kirsten won the first sprint at 39km and gained valuable seconds for the leaders jersey. In the final it came down to a sprint where Kirsten proved to be the strongest and could celebrate her 10th stage win in Qatar. Gaining another 10 bonus seconds for her victory she now holds a lead of 7″ ahead of Annalisa Cucinotta (Alé Cippolini) and 9″ ahead of Lizzie Williams (Orica AIS).

3d for Kirsten in La Madrid Challenge La Vuelta (UCI 1.1) 13.Sep

It was a beautiful first Vuelta  race in Madrid centre on Sunday, where the whole team contributed to a podium for Kirsten Wild. Janicke Gunvaldsen covered countless attacks the first hour. Tatiana Guderzo and Lauren Kitchen covered whatever Janicke missed. Charlotte Becker was everywhere, including guarding Wld in the first part. Tone Hatteland Lima had a tough day but closed the dangerous attack of Valsecchi (BePink), when immediately after Guderzo and Kitchen ambushed the peloton with a surprise attack. The group grew to 13 when Charlotte Becker followed 5 chasers, and we had a very good situation with 3 in the break. Unfortunately, too many in the break saw the danger and stopped riding. The peloton came altogether, and the Hitec team made a powerful leadout train for sprinter Kirsten Wild. Despite the good team effort she was passed by Bronzini (Wiggle) and the winner Shelley Olds (Ale Cippolini), and finished 3d in the bunch sprint.

Podiums x 2 for Kirsten in Boels Rental Holland Ladies Tour (UCI 2.1) 1.9.2015

A great week of racing i Holland, although not with the greatest weather. Kirsten won the peloton sprint for 3d on stage 3, after a break of 2 riders succeeded to trick the peloton. On the Saturday in Gennep Kirsten was incredibly close of winning but Brennauer passed her in the last 2 meters. For the final stage Tatiana got in a strong break of 11, unfortunately the group was caught back by the Boels Dolmans team, so De Jong (Rabo) won the stage and Lisa Brennauer (Velocio) won overall .

Winston Salem Cycling Classic (UCI 1.2)

The first ever race for the team in USA didnt go to plan. It was Janicke Gunvaldsens debut for the team and she was well visible at the front the first part of the race. Although no real results for the team Kirsten won the intermediate sprint contest in the race. Really unfortunate that Julie crashed out of the race in a descent, we wish her a speedy recovery.

2nd in Chongming Island World Cup (UCI CDM)

Kirsten 2nd place was a result of a great performance underway by the Hitec team to control the peloton single handedly. Thea and Tone chased the break of Chulkova (Bepink) and Ming (Chongming Giant) for almost 30 km, to catch them exactly on the 5 km mark. The train of Charlotte, Lauren and Tatiana set up Kirsten perfectly for the final 200 meters. Only a slightly too early sprint by Kirsten allowed Bronzini (WHT) to pass her on the final 20 meters to take the world cup win. Unfortunately, the report posted on the UCI page was written by a person who had obviously not been at the race, but so be it. It was probably our best team performance of the season so far!

Overall Victory and 2 stages in Tour of Chongming Island (UCI 2.1)

The China trip started perfectly with 2 stage wins for Kirsten, with 2 different sprint train variants to confuse the opponents. The last day we resorted to control the peloton because of the dangerous conditions. A nice and comfortable GC victory for Kirsten, great team work.
