Pooley prevails at Giro del Trentino

Patuzzo sprints to final stage victory

Eleonora Patuzzo (Safi - Pasta Zara) won the final stage of the Giro del Trentino today from a four-rider break. The Italian outsprinted Judith Arndt (HTC Columbia Women) and Claudia Häusler (Cervelo TestTeam) at the conclusion of the 72km stage into Cles. Arndt's teammate Noemi Cantele finished fourth while Monia Baccaille (Team Valdarno) finished fifth 31 seconds later to lead in a 16-rider chase group containing the GC contenders.

Emma Pooley (Cervelo TestTeam) defended her leader's jersey earned in the opening stage to claim the overall classification, the Briton's second stage race win of the season. Arndt finished second, 2:25 behind, while Pooley's teammate Häusler rounded out the podium in third, 2:41 back.. In today's 72 km stage from Castel Thun to Cles, Häussler placed third behind Judith Arndt and stage winner Eleonora Patuzzo (ITA-Safi Pasta Zara).

"It went really well today, we kept the jersey, the team worked hard and rode very aggressively and we were able to make some attacks," said Pooley. "In the front group there were fourteen riders with three from our team. Sharon was super strong today and Claudia ended up in the breakaway with Arndt and finished third in the stage and in the general classification as well. Today's conditions were not easy. It was wet and cold and the team really held it together to achieve another great result for the team."

"We tried to make it hard again today as we were climbing up 1000 metres on the stages' only climb. We experienced strong conditions with heavy rain and it was quite cold," said Jens Zemke, Sports Director. "Super job from the team, we won just about everything with the mountain jersey also going to Pooley, fantastic team work and team spirit."
