ORICA-AIS put two riders in the top five at the Borsele time trial on Friday evening. Ellen Van Dijk (Specialized-lululemon) proved fastest, covering the 19.2 kilometre course in 26’11”. Loes Gunnewijk finished 26” behind Van Dijk to take second place. Shara Gillow rounded out the top five with a time of 26’48”.
"I was pretty motivated to do a good job here, and from the start, I knew I was riding well. There was a girl two minutes in front of me, and I came closer to her throughout the race. My brother is from this area, and I had him and his girlfriend and my parents in the team car. I could sometimes hear them when I was out on the course, and this gave me extra motivation." - Loes Gunnewijk
