July 31/11 12:05 pm - Sparkassen-Giro: women's results

Posted by Editoress on 07/31/11

Results from today's Internationale Sparkassen-Giro in Germany won by Adrie Visser (HTC Highroad Women).  Joanie Caron (Canadian National Team) finished 20th at 10 sec back


HTC-Highroad's Adrie Visser pulled ahead of five other riders to claim her third win of the 2011 season in the Sparkassen Giro Bochum one-day race on Sunday.

Visser clipped off the front in a six-rider breakaway that formed close to the finish of the eighty-nine kilometer race, then easily out-sprinted the rest for a convincing victory.

"When I heard Adrie was away in the group I knew we had a really good chance," said HTC-Highroad sports director Jens Zemke, "It was a flat finish with a three hundred meter straight away and she timed it perfectly. Adrie did it exactly right."

Visser's victory was not the day's only highlight for HTC-Highroad, as team-mate Evelyn Stevens won the Grand Prix of the Mountains classification after a day-long break in which the American rider took maximum points on each climb.

"We rode a strong race tactically and Evelyn was really impressive throughout," Zemke said, "There was a great atmosphere too, with massive crowds watching. Bochum is Germany's most important women's race, and it made a big win even more special."
