Team SD Worx starts the Tour de France with a third place for Lotte Kopecky

The first stage of the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift started under the Eiffel Tower. From there it went to the local rounds. Along the way, Team SD Worx controlled and was always alert at the front. In addition to the yellow dream, Team SD Worx is also going for the green jersey with Lotte Kopecky. She won the second intermediate sprint and also gathered points in the first intermediate sprint. In the final sprint, Lorena Wiebes and Marianne Vos were faster. Wiebes took the stage and the first yellow jersey. “Nevertheless I am satisfied. I picked up important points, that was also the plan, so I am still satisfied.” 

Kopecky is second in the points classification and can wear the green jersey tomorrow. “It’s great that I can wear this iconic jersey tomorrow. This gives a lot of confidence for what is yet to come in this Tour. It was a bit nervous, but in the end it wasn’t too bad. There weren’t too many corners in the course, so that makes it easier. The atmosphere was nice, I am looking forward to the next stage. My main chances to win a stage are still to come.”
