With less than two weeks remaining until the inaugural Team Time Trial World Championship event, the women’s peloton had a chance for a final in-race practice at the Brainwash Holland Ladies Tour on Wednesday. Specialized-lululemon won the event from Orica-Green Edge and Rabobank in a time of 41’04” over 34km in the town of Dronten.
The win put Trixi Worrack into the race lead going into the third stage with four days of racing remaining
“It was the last TTT test before worlds and it shows that we are in a good position with 10 days to go,” said Team Sport Director Ronny Lauke.
“There are still a few minor things that we can do better. After winning all the important TTT’s this season we can be confident but we definitely have a lot of respect for our competitors. The results have been close and it will be a close battle amongst the top teams for the TTT crown on September 16.”
