The China trip started perfectly with 2 stage wins for Kirsten, with 2 different sprint train variants to confuse the opponents. The last day we resorted to control the peloton because of the dangerous conditions. A nice and comfortable GC victory for Kirsten, great team work.
Team: Kirsten, Thea, Tone, Lauren, Charlotte, Tatiana
Another perfect display of teamwork resulted in a huge win for Lauren Kitchen, from a break of 6 riders. Team mate Kirsten Wild won the peloton sprint for 7th. Underway in the race, the Hitec Products team controlled every move and chased down any unwanted breaks. Kitchen also won the implemented sprint contest on equal points with team mate Charlotte Becker. The victory puts Team Hitec Products as the most winning team in the world at the moment.
