Soeder takes Suisse time trial

On course for worlds

Christaine Soeder took another step towards her World Championships objective by winning the 14.8-kilometre GP de Suisse time trial Friday. The Austrian won with a time of 21:49, 25 seconds over Jeannie Longo-Ciprelli and 42 seconds on teammate Emma Pooley.

"I see how I am for the Worlds, a good thing to know in the spring for our next goal," said Soeder.

She will race the World Cup and then take a break from competition. Her summer programme includes the Grande Boucle Féminine Internationale and International Thüringen Rundfahrt der Frauen. She said the World Championships in Mendrisio, Switzerland, is her biggest goal.
