Lotta Henttala sprints to 2nd on the opening stage of the Santos Women's Tour Down Under

Lotta Henttala (Trek Segafredo) did a very long sprint in the final of the opening stage of the Santos Women's Tour Down Under. The Finnish sprinter came out of the last corner at the front of the main punch accelarating towards the finish line with Australian Chloe Hosking (Rally Cycling) on the wheel of her's. The rest of the women couldn't follow the powerful sprint of the two girls and there was a clear cap between the two and the rest of the punch. Chloe came past Lotta inside the last 150 meters and got a significant win of her career. “It’s amazing! I’m just so proud of the girls,”Hosking said on the finish line. “We were committed to a sprint for me. It’s our first race all together, but you wouldn’t know it on the

road. They were always there. When there were troubles in the winds they were all rolling and they did exactly what we planned, which is keep the speed high and keep me out of trouble, and if I didn’t have enough of them left at the finish, I was going to surf wheels.”
