May 2/10 17:31 pm - Grand Prix Elsy Jacobs: Photos, Report and Results

Posted by Editoress on 05/2/10

Emma Pooley (GBR) continued her winning streak with another victory today at the GP Elsy Jacobs. Monia Baccaille (ITA- Team Valdarno Umbria) placed second and Andrea Bosman (NED- third.




“We had another sensational win today from Emma Pooley,” said Jens Zemke, Sports Director. “Emma escaped on the second last climb, with 20 kilometres to the finish. Behind her was a group of twenty riders that included Sharon Laws (GBR), Lizzie Armitstead (GBR) and Regina Bruins (NED). Lizzie was also involved in a break together with Ludivine Henrion (BEL-Red Sun cycling) and Judith Arndt (GER-HTC-Columbia) that was out for 30 kilometres. They were brought back into the bunch about 20 kilometres before the finish. Then, just as Lizzie was caught, Emma attacked, while the other 3 girls in the bunch covered the attacks that came from behind. It really was a spectacular display of team work, I must say.”

“Once again today we had a really good race,” said Emma Pooley. “Twenty kilometres before the finish, just when the group that Lizzie was in came back I was watching Emma Johansson (SWE – Red Sun Cycling) and we broke out of the peloton. I decided to attack and the first time she was able to follow me, but when I tried it again I was able to drop her. Our tactic today was to make the race really hard and that worked very well. I must say that I am really proud of this team. We have had a lot of wins in the past weeks, every rider is really strong and we’ve learned to ride together as a team. All our hard work is paying off now. Tomorrow we will have another race in Luxembourg, the GP Mameranus. I am looking forward to it.”
