Italian Fabiana Luperini (Aurora RSM) outkicked Nathalia Boyarskaya of the Russian national team in stage 6 of the Tour de l’Aude Feminin, while Saturn’s Lyne Bessette collected her second leader’s jersey with a little help from her team.

Luperini and Boyarskaya got away 76km into the 115km circuit race around Castelnaudary, on the Fanjeaux climb, and since neither was a threat to Bissette, Saturn couldn’t have been happier, according to assistant general manager Giana Roberge.

“Riding tempo and looking after Bessette’s safety, Ina Teutenberg, Katie Mactier and Manon Jutras spent the remainder of the race at the front,” Roberge said.

The two escapees built their lead past the two-minute mark, but lost half of that as the field headed for home. Luperini got the win, Boyarskaya and Nurnberger’s Petra Rossner took second and third, and Bessette rolled safely in with the field.
