Sunday was time for our 4th time in this classic in Tielt-Winge. We managed to place 3 riders in the break of 17, Elisa, Julia and Audrey. Julie later dropped from the group, but this was a promising start for her. With a few km to go Emma Johansson (GreenEdge) and Elisabeth Armitstead (Dolmans) attacked the group, Elisa was close to catch them but couldnt quite make it. Instead there was a group sprint of 9 riders and Audrey took the last posium spot after Armistead beat Johansson for the win. Elisa took the 10th spot.

We did 3 races in El Salvador the 6., 7. amnd 8.March. All 3 were very hot, more than 40 degrees. This gave us big problems, and in all the 3 races we dropped from the leaders in the final climbs. In Grand Prix GSB, Miriam was our best with a 26th place. In GP de Oriente and GP El Salvador Cecilie was our best with 32d and 27. places. Tone was in a break in GP el Salvador, but the break was catched by the peloton. Races were won by Zabelinska (Rusvelo), Abbott (United Health Care) and Amialusik (BePink) respectively. Next week is the Vuelta El Salvador, from 11. to 16.March.
