Festival Luxembourgeois - Elsy Jacobs
Stage 1: Garnich - Stage Details

Emma Johansson sprinted to fifth on the first Festival Luxembourgeois – Elsy Jacobs road stage. Giorgia Bronzini (Wiggle Honda) won in Garnich from a group of 20 riders, in which ORICA-AIS had placed four riders. Johansson’s efforts afforded her a three spot jump on the overall. The Swede now sits in second place, 4” behind race leader Marianne Vos (Rabobank-Liv Giant) ahead of the final stage. Amanda Spratt is one spot further back, tied on time, in third. 

“It was a good result with all the work [Emma] had done earlier in the day,” said McPartland. “We’re happy to see Emma and Spratty move up on the overall. It will be hard to gain on time on Vos tomorrow, but we’re certainly going to give it our best shot.”
