BeNeLadies Tour (UCI 2.1) 13.-16.July 2017

The team took on their second stage race this summer on the border of Belgium and Nederland.  Therace started with a 1.9 km prolog, where Susanne was our best with 11th. On the first stage, 2 riders awat, we did a leadout for Nina for the 3d place, but went a little to early and no result. To make it worse, Vita crashed and was taken to hospital with a broken finger. The next day started with a short road race, stage 2A.  Again 2 riders escaped late, Tone and Ingvild worked hard to keep it back but, couldnt, Nina was 3d in the peloton sprint and 5th overall. Cecilei was having a bad day and decided to not start the ITT on stage 2B. Marianne Vos was best on the day, again Susanne sis a good TT and was our best with 11th. On the last stage, Nina went in a long breakaway with Trevisi (Cipollini team), tha thad at the most 1:05. They where catched with 10km to go, and today it sticked together for a bunch sprint. Susanne did a great sprint and finished 3d, behind overall winner Marianne Vos and vd Ree (Lares Waovdeals). In the GC Susanne finished 9 and Nina 18. It was a encouraging stage race, Susanne delivered again, Nina was strong, Ingvild in progress. The only really bad thing was Vitas little finger, which was broken.
Team: Ingvild, Vita, Susanne, Nina, Tone, Cecilie
