S.A.T.S.take first win of season

By Kristy Scrymgeour

Team S.A.T.S took their first win of the season today at the second stage of Tour de L'Aude and they did it in style. In a late break Danish rider Dorte Rasmussen powered away and managed to hold off a charging field by seconds after a 25 kilometer solo ride.

The stage was animated from the gun with three mid race primes taking place in the first 20km helping to get things started. Joanne Kiesanowski took the first sprint as the bunch rode single file through the tiny French villages. After the second sprint a counter move saw a group of 12 riders go up the road taking over two minutes on the field by the first mountain sprint of the day. It was on the Col de Sallettes, the nine-kilometre category one climb, that the break came back together and a counter move eventuated with three riders. Priska Doppmann (Mixed Univega Pct/Ar) took off with Linda Serup (Buitenpoort Flexpoint) and Rasmussen, but before long Rasmussen had dropped the other two and was flying solo.

At 15km to go Rasmussen held a 55" gap over the field. A few riders out of the bunch tried to bridge the gap but never quite made it and Univega picked up the chase. The gap started to fall but Rssmussen didn't give in. She took the stage by a mere eight second over the bunch in a very impressive ride. In the bunch it was Oenone Wood to take the bunch sprint again, this time the bonus points for second place put moved her up into the leaders jersey going into stage three.

Team S.A.T.S were very excited by the win, as was their team director Cathy Marsal who was ecstatic when Cyclingnews caught up with her after the race having won her first race as a director after retiring from racing at the end of last year.

"Let me tell you how happy I am," she said. "I have an amazing group of riders. They are magical with a great spirit.. They needed this win. It's going to give them the tailwind that they need. They know now that they can do it. Dorte opened the way. Its awesome for the sponsors and the people working behind the scenes to make this happen. It s a great feeling they we will never forget."

Tomorrow riders have a double stage day with the first stage being fast and flat, perfect for another bunch sprint and the second finishing at the top of a very steep two kilometer climb, the stage consisting of two climbs in the very short distance of 46km.
