Ellen Van Dijk, Clara Hughes and Ina-Yoko Teutenberg placed 1st, 3rd and 4th respectively at the Borsele Time Trial in The Netherlands on Friday evening. Van Dijk taking a minute out of her minute-woman Marianne Vos for a spectacular victory. Green Edge's Linda Villumsen took second place.
"It's really nice to win here," said Van Dijk. "I've been working hard on my TT and I'm happy that things are going so well in an Olympic year. I'm looking forward to tomorrow's race here now and then we have a race in Roeselare on Sunday."
"I'm frozen," said Hughes after the race. "It was torrential rain out there. We all started in an absolute downpour but it was a good result. I had a good ride and Ellen had a super ride.
"It's been really exciting these past couple of weeks to race together and win together."
"I'm really happy with the girls," said Team Director Ronny Lauke. "They're putting everything into their racing and it's paying off.
"Coming of the victory at Energiewacht and then Fleche Wallone on the weekend, they're full of motivation and it's really nice to see Ellen get this victory. She really deserves it.
"We spent quite a bit of time in the last weeks with the new SHIV TT bikes, getting the positions all dialed in for the new girls and fine-tuning the positions of the returning riders. Ellen's has taken a huge step up from last season and the results are showing."
