Wood on a roll in New Zealand

Oenone Wood of T-Mobile Team won her second straight stage at the Trust House Women's Tour in New Zealand on Friday, for the team's third straight win at the race. Teammate Ina-Yoko Teutenberg kept the leader's jersey.

The third stage featured four laps around a 30 kilometre course. Various breakaways formed, but T-Mobile took charge and brought the group in for a mass sprint finish, which Wood won ahead of Larissa Kleinmann (German national team) and Jenny McPherson (Australian national team).

"The girls did a fantastic job again today and kept the race under control," said directeur sportif Anna Wilson. "We're in a good position for the deciding mountain stage on Saturday."
