Third place for Christine Majerus in Healthy Ageing Tour

10 April 2019

Christine Majerus finished third in stage one of the Healthy Ageing Tour on the German isle of Borkem. In the last turn Amy Pieters was in the lead however she was held up by a crash. Lotta Lepisto profited and won the stage for Lisa Klein and Christine Majerus.

Christine reflects on the race. "It was hectic again today. We rode good as a team but couldnt place everybody in the first group. In the final 3 laps we tried to split the first group again without success. For the final, because it was quite dangerous, the girls tried to bring me to the front before the last corner but unfortunately I lost Amy's wheel and got shuffled back. There was a crash in the last corner so I managed to overtake two girls and finished third. Obviously would have liked to have done a bit better with all the work of the girls in the final. But still happy with podium."
