Despite being concerned she had launched her sprint too early, Equipe Nürnberger Versicherung's Suzanne de Goede claimed victory on the Women's Tour of New Zealand's opening stage. After claiming sixth at last weekend's Women's World Cup opener in Geelong, Australia the Dutch rider held off Australia's Oenone Wood (Team High Road Women) and local rider Joanne Kiesanowski (Cervelo Lifeforce Pro Cycling Team) to win the small bunch sprint.

"I went a little bit early, but I still won, so that was cool. It was a good start to the tour," de Goede told Stuff.co.nz. "My team were great in the way they worked together, and we'll be looking to continue that for the rest of the tour."

De Goede, who finished 21st in last week's Tour of Geelong, last won on Kiwi soil in 2005, when the rider claimed the Women's World Cup round formerly hosted by New Zealand, which was also staged in Wellington.

Wood, the current Australian Open Road Champion, was disappointed to miss out on the victory. "It's a tough little circuit, and it was really windy out on the course today," she said. "I was lucky [team-mate] Chantal Beltman did quite a lot of the work out there."

Beijing Olympic Games hopeful Kiesanowski was even more disappointed to miss the opportunity of a home-soil win. "I was definitely hoping to win the stage, but I suppose I'll have to be content with third," she said.

The stage was defined by a 10-person break away that managed to claim a 35 second advantage on the around the 2.2km Lower Hutt street circuit. The lead group included some big-named riders, with Olympic Road Champion Sara Carrigan (Team Lotto-Belisol Ladiesteam), former Time Trial World Champion Kristin Armstrong (Cervelo Lifeforce Pro Cycling Team) and Nathalie Bates (Menikini - Selle Italia).
