Lisa Klein moved back into the overall lead at Baloise Ladies Tour after her individual time trial stage win tonight. Lisa won the shortened seven kilometre ITT stage by just half a second race but now leads the tour by eleven seconds before tomorrow’s final stage.
“Our sport director Lars Teutenberg did a great job in the radio for me. I really trusted him to navigate me. The last three kilometres were so painful but I was pleased with how I could speed up in the final!” said an elated Lisa after the win.
Teammate Hannah Ludwig finished third in the stage and takes over the lead in the youth classification before stage 3, a 121 kilometre flat stage in Zulte, Belgium.
Lisa continued, “My goal is to win the stage race today! We’re really motivated and all of the team is racing strong so we’re looking forward to some fun.”
