In the return og marianne Vos, the team did a great job of defending last years podium. We set up our 2 captains beautifully to place Elisa back on the podium with 3d and Ashleigh on 5th. Nothing could be done with the winner Pauline Ferrand Prevot (Rabobank) and world cup leader Elisabeth Armitstead (Boels Dolmans) on 2d.
