Armstrong wins Holland Ladies Tour

Kristin Armstrong of the US National Team used her expertise in the time trial to win the Holland Ladies Tour, while T-Mobile Team took the second and third places overall.

Armstrong was able to move up from 17th place going into the final stage to take the stage and overall win. She finished the 19.9-kilometre time trial 18 seconds ahead of Raleigh's Christiane Söder and 32 seconds ahead of T-Mobile's Linda Villumsen. The final podium was Armstrong first, with Judith Arndt second and Villumsen third.

"I am very happy, with two riders on the podium. That is great," said T-Mobile Sport Director Anna Wilson on the team's website, "Judith wasn't happy that she couldn't regain the lead. But she did all she could and fought until the end. She doesn't need to be dissatisfied. I'm very happy for Linda, that she made it on to the podium. You can see her developing from race to race. She just keeps getting better."
