Hausler In Pink Another Day

Stage 8, a 115.6 km stage from S. Marco dei Cavoti to Peco Sannita, was characterized by a break of 17 riders.

The stage was won in a sprint from the breakaway by Trixi Worrack (Equipe N?rnberger Versicherung). Claudia Hausler and her teammates successfully defended the leader’s jersey, as she won the sprint in her group of finishers, which included the other GC contenders. Cerv?lo TestTeam is also leading the Teams Classification.

"The team was crazy strong today!" said Sports Director Manel Lacambra. "The Team was controlling the peloton while a group of 17 riders was in the break. When the group had more than 3 min advantage the team worked very well in the front of the peloton to ensure that the gap did not increase. Unfortunately, Sarah D?ster was involved in a crash just ahead of the last mountain. Judith Arndt (Columbia-HTC) also crashed and was not able to continue racing. In the climb, the team controlled all the competitors’ attacks. Claudia, Kristin and Emma were riding in a group with all of the other GC riders. Kristin and Emma worked very hard to keep the group together. In the end Trixi Worrack won the stage sprinting out from the break away, while Claudia won the sprint out of the best riders group and defend successfully her maglia rosa. Tomorrow, a quite flat stage is ahead of us; the Giro is not finished but if nothing exceptional happens we will win the GC."
