The second race in 2 days in Canada was an 11km long individual time trial where we had 3 riders. Charlotte was our best with a nice 14th place, while Vita and Cecilie was not at their form and finished on 40th and 31sth place. Carmen Small from peanuts 2016 won the race.
Team: Vita, Cecilie, Charlotte
Another great team victory, the first on Canadian soil for us. The girls closed down countless attacks during the race, especially from Velocio SRAM, but in the end it came down to a bunch sprint and Kirsten delivered yet again to take our 14th UCI Victory for 2015.
Team: Emilie Moberg, Miriam Bjørnsrud, Kirsten Wild, Vita Heine, Cecilie Gotaas Johnsen, Charlotte Becker
The first ever race for the team in USA didnt go to plan. It was Janicke Gunvaldsens debut for the team and she was well visible at the front the first part of the race. Although no real results for the team Kirsten won the intermediate sprint contest in the race. Really unfortunate that Julie crashed out of the race in a descent, we wish her a speedy recovery.
Team: Julie Leth, Miriam Bjørnsrud, Emilie Moberg, Vita Heine, Janicke Gunvaldsen, Kirsten Wild
The second stage race of our China campaign, another big success for the team. Tatiana took out her first stage win of the season on stage 1, and jumped straight into yellow after a late attack. On the second stage, Kuchinskaya rode away with Lauren on her wheel, Lauren jumped her to the stage 2in and into yellow. Charlotte took her first podium of the year with 3d place. For the final stage the team controlled the peloton for Laurens yellow, in the final messy sprint she was 2nd by a small margin, but safely won the overall GC. To top this, Charlotte was 3d and Tatiana 4th in the GC. Again great work by Tone and Thea to control the peloton.
Team: Thea, Tone, Lauren, Charlotte, Tatiana
Kirsten 2nd place was a result of a great performance underway by the Hitec team to control the peloton single handedly. Thea and Tone chased the break of Chulkova (Bepink) and Ming (Chongming Giant) for almost 30 km, to catch them exactly on the 5 km mark. The train of Charlotte, Lauren and Tatiana set up Kirsten perfectly for the final 200 meters. Only a slightly too early sprint by Kirsten allowed Bronzini (WHT) to pass her on the final 20 meters to take the world cup win. Unfortunately, the report posted on the UCI page was written by a person who had obviously not been at the race, but so be it. It was probably our best team performance of the season so far!
Team: Kirsten, Thea, Tone, Lauren, Charlotte, Tatiana
The gravel roads of Ottestad was clearly something for the Hitec girls. The entire team rode away from the peloton and won easily, Cecilie first crossing the line to extend her Norwegian Cup GC lead.
Team: Cecilie, Emilie, Vita, Miriam
