Miriam takes the jersey in Nationals Road Race – Norway (28.06)

A most beautiul race from the girls in the hard course in Lillehammer. The first 2 rounds Janicke, Tone and Thea attacked the peloton constantly before Vita got away in the hill on the 3d round. Cecilie got a free ride up to her following a break of 4, which she attacked in the 4th round and got up to Vita. The duo rode together until the start of the 6th round when Vita had to let go. Cecilie went on alone up the hill, then Ingrid Lorvik (CK Victoria) attacked, but was followed closely by Miriam. Miriam attacked Ingrid and joined Cecilie just before the top, and got 12 seconds to Lorvik. They rode well together on the last round and Miriam could cross the line first to her first national jersey with good margin. As usual Emilie wrapped up the group sprint for 4th place.
Team: Thea, Tone, Janicke, Miriam, Vita, Cecilie, Emilie
