Dirty Girls!

I had a great feeling out there today but unfortunately I didn’t have the greatest result!

It was evident after the first two intermediate sprints at 29km and 46km that HTC Columbia’s Ina Teutenberg was on fire! Ina looked very explosive and took the first two sprints comfortably. Cervelo’s Kirsten Wild took second in each intermediate sprint and I was 3rd.

My team; the Australian National Team were active and supportive until the final kilometre, things were going quite well until I made a poor decision with 500m to go and started my sprint late, way too late- I came 4th. In saying that, I don’t think anyone was going to beat Ina today, she proved that when she hits form, she is the world’s fastest sprinter!

I think I was capable of a better sprint today, tactically. Let’s hope for a better outcome tomorrow!
