Race in Reckange-Mess (LUX) September 15th 2013

 

Last race of the road season together with the boys. We were only 5 girls to start amidst the boys and my aim was to try to get into a frontgroup and finish first girl. Which I managed to do, I went out in a a group of three for some laps (unfortunately the attack didn’t go through to the end) and I had no problem to finish first girl in the final sprint (we were only two left in the first group).

Satisfying final on a sunny Sunday before starting cyclocross season.

 

 

A short information by Marc Godart (DS of the UCI Team Pratomagno-Women)
 
Our team was selected for the "Team Time Trial" at the worlds in Italy (Firenze) because we finished on the 20th place on the UCI TEAMS LIST. We prepared this event as seriously as possible and Suzie did a lot of practicing on the time trial bike. So Suzie and the whole staff went down to Italy for the race and upon arriving there, we have been confronted with the refusal of the Russian riders to race. Since there was no possibility to arrange something, I was forced to cancel the race on Friday evening. This came as a very big disappointment for everyone really involved in the team, Ilio Donnini, me and all the people that worked hard to make this happen.
