Festival Luxembourgeois - Elsy Jacobs
Stage 2: Mamer - Stage Details

The second stage of racing in Luxembourg ended in the projected bunch sprint with Marianne Vos (Rabobank Liv/Giant) edging out Giorgia Bronzini (Wiggle Honda) for the win. The ever-consistent Emma Johansson rounded out the stage podium. In large part due to bonus seconds, the overall podium mirrored the stage two podium with Vos taking top honours ahead of Bronzini and Johansson.

“We gave it everything we had. Bronzini is in good form at the moment, and Vos is Vos. We did the best we could in the situation we had. I’m happy to have Emma finish on the podium, and I'm encouraged with how the girls rode. We continue to learn about and from each other, and it’s especially good to see the younger girls like Nettie [Edmondson] take on board advice and show immediate improvements.” - Sport Director Dave McPartland
