The girls proved in the streets of Gjøvik that they know how to race criterium. After early decimation of the peloton Miriam escaped and rode solo, until Thea came up to her. In the end Thea crossed the line first to her second criterium title, Janicke attacked to take the bronze, while Emilie took the sprint for 4th in the remains of the escape group.

Time to find the MTBs again, and 7 girls to start in the local marathon race outside Stavanger. For the 6th time in a row we won the elite women class, but for the first time we didnt have the fastest women of the day. Young junior Susanne Andersen from Stavanger won the 2-up finish line sprint vs Emilie, on a day the rest of the team didnt have the best form. Emilie won the elite class and both the intermediate sprints, while Tone was 4th and Vita 5th.
