Teutenberg wins at Thüringen
 
German Ina Teutenberg wins at the Thüringen Rundfahrt der Frauen (Women's Tour of Thuringia) UCI stage race in Germany ahead of the London Olympic Games.

Ina-Yoko Teutenberg was victorious in the Stage One of Thuringen Rundfahrt on today, winning a bunch sprint in the town of Neustadt. The 114kms stage covered the typical undulating terrain of the Thueringen area and was laden with heavy winds and threatening downpours.

"I'm really happy with the win," said Teutenberg. "The girls were active all day and did a great lead-out for the sprint. It's probably the best lead-out we've done as a team all year."

"It was hard out there with the wind," she added. "It was fast all day and the bunch was continually splitting up. But I felt good out there and I'm happy I was able to finish it off at the end."

The seven-day stage race is the last race opportunity for riders to prepare for the London Olympic Games coming up in two weeks time. The six Specialized-lululemon riders at Thueringen, as well as four of their teammates will all represent their nations in London.

"We are very excited to be fielding so many of our athletes at the Olympic Games. 10 of our 13 have been selected" says Team Sport Director Ronny Lauke. "It's been a fantastic year and the girls have all raced really well together under the pressure of an Olympic Year. Today they showed that they have the form to do well, so we're excited for the coming weeks."
