Regina Schleicher of Equipe Nürnberger now has the leader's, sprinter's and points jerseys in the women's Tour of Grand Montreal, after winning the first stage Monday.

She gives the credit for it all to her teammates. Schleicher, the 2005 World Champion, won a mass sprint against T-Mobile's Oenone Wood and Georgia Bronzini of Safi Pasta.

Nürnberger's Trixi Worrack, second in the World's 2006, prepared the sprint for her teammate and finished ninth. However, she had picked up enough bonus seconds at the intermediate sprints to reach fifth place overall. "Trixi did a perfect job," Schleicher said. "She rode at the front on the last curve and coming out from behind her, I could use all my speed. All our riders today did a lot for this win."
