Speciaized-lululemon prevail in stage 2 team time trial

With less than two weeks remaining until the team time trial world championship event, the women's peloton had a chance for a final in-race practice at the Brainwash Holland Ladies Tour's second stage on Wednesday. Specialized-lululemon won the event in 41:04, beating runner-up Orica-AIS by 19 seconds and third-placed Rabo Women Cycling Team by 58 seconds over 34km in the town of Dronten.

The win put Specialized-lululemon's Trixi Worrack into the race lead going into the third stage with four days of racing remaining.

"It was the last TTT test before Worlds and it shows that we are in a good position with 10 days to go," said Specialized-lululemon Sport Director Ronny Lauke.

"There are still a few minor things that we can do better. After winning all the important TTTs this season we can be confident but we definitely have a lot of respect for our competitors. The results have been close and it will be a close battle amongst the top teams for the TTT crown on September 16."
