August 25/13 10:27 am - Glaesser Takes Sprint Lead at Lotto Belisol Tour
Posted by Editoress on 08/25/13
Team TIBCO's Jasmin Glaesser, the U23 Canadian Time Trial Champion, proved her strength in the European pro peloton on Saturday, earning the green sprinter's jersey and the best young rider jersey after Stage 2 of the Lotto Belisol Tour of Belgium.
The 110 kilometre stage was challenging on the Belgian cobbles as riders fought for position and navigated slippery roads in a torrential downpour. Despite several hard attacks, the race came down to a bunch sprint where Team TIBCO's Shelley Olds delivered a hard-fought sixth place finish. Kirsten Wild won the day.
Team TIBCO is going strong at the Tour, delivering a third-place podium finish in Friday’s team time trial before Glaesser's two jerseys yesterday.
