March 3/13 11:13 am - Merco Credit Union Classic: Women Stage 2


Posted by Editoress on 03/3/13
 

Team Specialized-lululemon took its fourth win is as many days on Saturday with Ina-Yoko Teutenberg taking out the Merced criterium, a race she has made her own over the past years. Making a six person break with her team-mate Ally Stacher as well as Lauren Tamayo, Lauren Hall Jo Kiesanowski and Leah Kirchmann, Teutenberg won the final sprint with teammate Evelyn Stevens finishing safely in the bunch to keep the yellow leaders jersey.

"it's been a tough lead into the season for me," said Teutenberg. "Trying to find the motivation to do another year, but this race is always a good way to start the season and I'm happy to have been able to pull off the win today."

Teutenberg has won this race for the last five years running and has always made Merced her first race of the season. 

"It's really a great race," she said. "This year they've made the women's race 4 days which is perfect for us and they make a big effort to support women's cycling. It's a great atmosphere downtown for the crit and it makes racing a lot of fun."

"We have one more day to defend Evie's yellow jersey and we're looking forward to having another good race tomorrow."
