Prologue - May 16: Gruissan - Gruissan, 3km

Nurnberger take control

By Kristy Scrymgeour

The 19th annual Tour de L'Aude Feminin began today with a 3000m prologue in Gruissan, France. Going into stage one tomorrow, wearing the leader's jersey will be Petra Rossner (Nurnberger Versicherung) who took the win by one second from her teammate Judith Arndt. Arndt enjoyed the overall victory of this tour last year when she swapped the lead mid-way through the race with her Saturn teammate Ina Teutenberg who had held the lead from day one. Teutenberg placed equal third in today's prologue with Mirjam Melchers (Farm Frites).

Rossner, is almost a local in this beautiful area of France, having raced the tour all but one of the 19 years it has been running, winning a plethora of stages. Her victory today continues the recent success of the Nurnberger team, after Rossner and Arndt took two stages each in the Gracia Orlova Tour in the Czech Republic last week. With nine days of racing remaining, many hills, narrow village streets and the infamous wind this area of France, Rossner's team has their work cut out for them, however they are off to a flying start.

Tomorrow's 123 km stage begins in Port La Nouvelle and travels over two category 3 climbs and a category 2 climb, Col du Prat, Col du Couisse and Cote de Treilles, before it loops back into Port La Nouvelle for the finish.
