Vos victorious on penultimate stage to Limoux

Pooley remains in overall lead

Marianne Vos (Nederland Bloeit) claimed victory in a six-strong sprint on Stage 8. The Dutch rider held off Ina Yoko-Teutenberg (HTC-Columbia) and Joanne Kiesanowski (Tibco) to claim victory on the stage.

The six riders finished just four seconds ahead of the yellow jersey group of race leader Emma Pooley (Cervelo TestTeam).

Nederland Bloeit worked hard throughout the 112 kilometre stage, trying to force a split early in the stage. Cervelo sport director Egon van Kessel was pleased with how his riders controlled the breakaway.

“The race started with a very technical downhill with Team Nederland Bloiet, around Marianne Vos, trying their hardest to split the group,” said van Kessel. “Though there was a successful break away our team controlled the entire race in a quiet and confident style working together with Team USA and at the end with HTC-Columbia as well.”

Pooley maintains her 4:42 minute lead over Mara Abbot (US National Team) heading into the final stage. Pooley’s team-mate Claudia Häusler is confident her team will defend her title on the 90.5 kilometre stage in Carcassonne.

“We have a comfortable lead in the overall with Emma and we want to bring the yellow jersey home again tomorrow,” said Häusler. “We are totally motivated which makes it a lot of fun to ride in this race. I’m really pleased to race for Emma and looking forward to tomorrow’s final stage.”
