Lisa Klein won the Youth Classification jersey after the opening prologue at the Boels Ladies Tour in Arnhem, Netherlands. The 3.3km prologue was the start of the six-day tour that will finish on Sunday 2 September.
“The course was quite technical which I liked. I missed some speed by the accelerations. It was great to have the race car behind me and Ronny (Lauke) gave me a lot of motivation,” said Klein after the race.
“I hoped for a top 5 place but I am not too disappointed with my result. I gave my best and I will do it again in the next days to contribute to the team,” added Klein.
Annemiek Van Vleuten (MTS) won the prologue and will wear the leader’s jersey on stage one.
