After 129 kilometres of racing Kirsten Wild took honours in the sprint for the final International Cycling Union (UCI) Women’s World Cup victory of 2009. The Dutch rider out-paced Australia’s Rochelle Gilmore (Lotto-Belisol Ladiesteam) and Germany’s Ina Teutenberg (Team Columbia-HTC).

Another Australian, Kristy Broun, continued to make her mark on the international scene with a fourth place. World Cup winner Marianne Vos (DSB Bank – LTO) finished in sixth place, cementing her 28 point victory in the series over Emma Johansson (Red Sun Cycling Team).

"We controlled the race with our team today," said Wild, who finished third overall in the series. "Our girls were able to control every attack and we started with a whole bunch on the sprint. I knew that I could win the sprint after our victories last week at the Holland Ladies Tour.

“I felt pretty good, so I was really focused on the sprint,” she added. “Sarah Düster did an incredible job, she lead me out with 250 metres to go and it went perfectly and I was able to win. It was a great day because the team did a perfect job and we also won the final classification for teams."

The victory was Cervélo TestTeam’s fifth World Cup victory this season. Wild had previously placed runner-up at the Tour of Flanders and the Swedish World Cup. Team sport director Thomas Campana was delighted with the outcome for his squad.

"We were expecting a lot of attacks from Equipe Nürnberger and that did happen,” said Campana. “The girls did the best they could do and closed every gap in this race. I have to tip my hat to these girls, it was a great performance. Sarah and Kirsten finished the job in a very professional way. "
