10laps, 155km, 39.9km/h speed average
3.53hrs, 17th. Place, 37sec. back to three breakaway leaders
Despite hart training this week, and a great wedding party, of our Siemens-Cannondale Physio Michael the night before, I felt good from the beginning on.
Towards the end, the 5min. climb -at the beginning of each lap- separated the field in pieces. In the last lap three riders, broke away in the flat part along the Rhein river, and we never saw them again...
like this our small group of 16 left riders sprinted for the 4th. place only, and there I was one of the last, crossing the finish line.
