Andalucia Bike Race: Prologue

Today was the Prologue of the Andalucia Bike Race. It was a mass start which was neutralised for the first 8km. It was a little bit crazy at first and I found myself slipping backwards in the chaos, but Milena managed to keep her position nearer to the front. This gave me some work to do! Eventually I made it back to her and we rode together with some of the other ladies teams up the first climb and a very steep and rocky hike-a-bike section. Once we entered the forest we rode together with the Swedish girls (Asa and Kajsa) until we managed to take the lead on some technical climbs. We held the lead until the finish :)

We have no expectations in this race, other than to have fun, so to win today was a really nice surprise :D

1. Sally Bigham and Milena Landtwing 1:19:19
2. Nathalie Scheitter and Sabrina Mauerer 1:21:30
3. Asa Erlandsson and Kajsa Snihs 1:21:43

Tomorrow is a longer stage: 78km with 1965m

Fingers crossed for fun and good luck :)
