Ruth Winder won the 3rd stage of the Santos Women's Tour Down Under
The American Champion Ruth Winder (Trek Segafredo) won the 3rd stage of the Santos Women's Tour Down Under.
"My teammate Tayler Wiles, she was just leading me out perfectly. I was talking to her the whole time, we’ve been teammates for years and she’s helped me with so many wins, so every time I do I feel so grateful for her in the last 500 metres. The whole team the entire race was really active at the front covering things, making sure I was really safe until the circuits, which were pretty hard with Mitchelton-SCOTT destroying it on the times pretty much." Tomorrow's final Schwalbe Stage 4 if suited for more sprinters again: "It is a tight team style race... on road and bonus sprints so we’ll see how that goes. I have to put some sprinter legs on, probably ride my Madone which is the faster Trek bicycle, but we also have Lotta [Henttala] who is a super fast sprinter. She got second on the first stage and will be familiar with it, and we will see if we can get her on the podium again." Lotta is holding to 4th in the points classification at the moment.
