May 21/10 16:26 pm - Tour de l'Aude: Stage 7


Posted by Editoress on 05/21/10
 

Cervélo TestTeam’s Emma Pooley (GBR) won the 7th stage – the queen stage - of the Tour de l’Aude today and increased her lead in the overall ranking. The 27-year-old British rider put in an excellent performance today over the 105 km long course from Limoux to Roquefeuil claiming victory on the final meters over Mara Abbott (USA), who finished second. The third spot went to Emma Johansson (SWE). Claudia Häusler (GER) was edged out of a podium finish in the final sprint finishing fourth.

Pooley now leads the general classification with about 4.42 ahead of second place Mara Abbott and confidently looks forward to the last two stages. In the team standing, Cervélo TestTeam now has a lead of 13:12 ahead of their strongest contenders – the Nederland Bloeit team with Marianne Vos.

“It was an amazing race again today. In the first climb, seven riders went in a break away – among them Cervélo TestTeam riders Emma Pooley, Sharon Laws and Claudia Häusler,” explained Egon van Kessel, Sport Director. “Then Claudia attacked but couldn’t get away from the leading group. At the end, Emma made the decisive attack and went away with Mara Abbott on her wheel. Emma won the sprint and took the fourth stage victory for the team. The last two stages have an easier profile but can still be very hard. We are confident and will give our all to defend the yellow jersey."

“I am lucky to have such a great team with me, “ said the winner Emma Pooley after the race. “It was a very tough stage but my team mates did a really great job for me. Beside me, Claudia, Sharon and Regina were also able to finish among the top eleven which shows how strong team we have. I am proud to be a part of it. I am also happy that I defended my yellow jersey and I am looking forward to the last two days.”

Tomorrow’s 8th stage – the second last one- will take place from Aunat back to Limoux. With two mountains– a category one and a category three the course will not be as tough as today.
