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.
