A nice new race, but for our part marred by illness and crashes. Julie was in the youth jersey on her way to a good top 10 placement when she crashed in the final kilometers of the last stage. Emma Johansson won overall.
Team: Lauren, Julie, Siri, Chloe
Sara Olsson was agonizing close to win the tour, against a big Danish team, and with only Tone as a dedicated domestic. Sara won the prologue, but lost the tour on the finishing time trial by l4 seconds to Danish Camilla Møllebro Pedersen.
Team: Sara, Tone
The race was dominated by Rabobank from start to finish and Marianne Vos duly won. Our team was the main competitor, together with Lotto and United Health Care. Elisa ended on a fine 5th place in the GC, and also had a superb 2d place on the difficult stage 2. Ashleigh was in the climber jersey, while Elisa also won the best Italian jersey.

Miriam fought well on against the overwhelming big European teams and under the circumstances a 13th place is a good performance, although she was dissapointed. Stultiens of Nederland won the race from a break.
A brilliant performance by Sara and her first win in the Hitec jersey. She went solo for 45 minutes and won comfortably.
