The team looks back at a strong race says DS Danny Stam. "The team performed well today. We chose to place Annika for the final sprint. She had a small crash at the foot of the Cauberg which costed her lots of energy to come back to the front. Energy which she missed in the final and the sprint for third place." Katie Hall was also very active today as she broke away with Longo-Borghini and Spratt. "I was happy to be in the break away today and to cover some moves for my teammates. I felt strong but I am still trying to find my top end. I was happy to use my strenght for the benefit of the team today", according to Katie Hall.
