Liane Lippert Wins German Road National Championships!
After a slow start, Lippert attacked to bridge the gap to the lead group and continued on to final stretch, where she won the sprint from a small bunch aboard her Liv Langma Advanced SL.
"I'm the new German road race champion and I can't believe it,” said Lippert. “At first it was a slow race with a group in front. I was chasing really hard with the other pro riders to bring the group back, then I just attacked because I know I'm not the best sprinter. I was in a smaller group and then gave everything in my sprint and then I won, I really can't believe it."
Juliette Labous took second place in Thursday’s French Time Trial Championship, which placed her first in the U23 category. On Saturday, she again found herself on the U23 podium – this time in second, and sixth overall in the pro race.
Team Sunweb's women's team rounded out Nationals with five gold medals, Coryn Rivera - US (Road), Leah Kirchmann - Canada (TT), Ellen van Dijk - the Netherlands (TT), Juliette Labous - France (TT, U23), Liane Lippert - Germany (Road)
