Elizabeth Armitstead (AA Drink - Leontien.nl) opened her 2012 road account with a magnificent show of strength on the Belgian roads of Tielt, besting Pauline Prevot (Rabobank) and Elisa Longo Borghini (Hitec Products) to take her first Omloop van het Hageland - Tielt-Winge.

The win comes as a nice confidence booster for Amritstead who is hoping to get herself gold in the Olympic Games in London in four months time.
