Cervélo defends TTT in Sweden

Columbia finishes runner-up again

Kirsten Armstrong led the Cervélo TestTeam to back-to-back victories at the Open de Suède Vargarda TTT. The former UCI Time Trial World Champion’s team were 1:22 minutes quicker than Team Columbia over the 41.5 kilometre course.

"It was a wonderful day," said Armstrong. "Today the team worked together as a unit, and we've been working on this since Portugal in January."

Cervélo TestTeam manager Thomas Campana was delighted with his team’s effort. "It was a hard race, with a lot of wind," said Campana. "But the team was really listening to the briefing we gave to them two days ago, and today it was an exceptional performance from an exceptional group of athletes. Today, definitely the strongest team won the race."

Team Flexpoint finished third at the UCI Women’s World Cup event.
