Ina Yoko Teutenberg’s Blog


The first stage is over and there really is not much to write about as we enjoyed a beautiful day in Holland with temperatures in mid twenties and no wind. It doesn't happen often that sun lotion is used instead of rain jackets here, but I'm sure most of the peloton was happy to have a day of good weather to get cruising. This year is so different and it is hard to get the body going or maybe it is just my old body and brain!


Ina Yoko Teutenberg of Specialized-lululemon wins of the first stage of the Brainwash Ladies Tour in Holland


Our main goal of the week is tomorrow's team time trial, as we can use it as a last test before Worlds, so we decided to take it fairly easy today and just try to stay safe. We all came back in one piece. Evie and I avoided a crash early on and after that the manners in the field seemed pretty good towards each other. 


After the last bonus sprint at 80km, the girls got a bit motivated and attacks started. Evie was all over it after she had double checked it was ok to do something. I was happy that we had started to get moving and have to say I needed some leg openers, as I finally woke up during that time. This morning in our meeting I wasn't so sure where I would be, as moving out of my apartment and training last week did catch up with me, but I thought I'd give it a go. 


Sprinters can be exhausted, but when we smell that finish line there is normally always something left in the tank. It was the usual chaos and dangerous situations in the last five kilometers but I made it somehow and had Trixi in last kilometer to get me where I had to be. The sprint did seem to take forever, or rather it felt like we were going uphill...I was stoked to hold off the others and get a win in. Now we focus on tomorrow and after that we will see what the rest of the week brings....hopefully some wind and echelon action.
