Teutenberg opens with victory

HTC-Columbia ace overpowers Bronzini to take race lead

German Ina Teutenberg claimed the first stage win in the Giro Donne, sprinting to the win in the 58km stage to Trieste over Italian Giorgia Bronzini (Gauss RDZ Ormu) and Kirsten Wild (Cervelo).

The result puts Teutenberg into the race leader's jersey ahead of another likely sprint finish in Riese Pio X tomorrow.

The HTC-Columbia sprinter has already matched her single stage win of 2009, and with several flat finishes to come in the 10-day race, she stands to equal or surpass her four stage victories of 2008.

Teutenberg's win was the sprinter's 17th victory of the 2010 season. "Last year I won one stage here at the Giro Donne, and I feel really positive about surpassing that here this year," commented the HTC-Columbia rider. "I'm really motivated to defend the lead tomorrow."
