Ina Teutenberg won the New York City Women’s Challenge on Saturday. The race in New York is considered a warm-up event for Sunday’s First Union Liberty Classic, the sixth stop on the Women’s World Cup Tour.
Teutenberg got the win by taking the final sprint out of a five-woman break. The small group contained Teutenberg her Saturn teammate Kim Davidge, plus Jenny Eyerman (Jane’s Cosmetics), and Intersports teammates Elizabeth Emery’ and Erin Carter. That group escaped half way through the race after a solo break by Saturn’s Anke Erlank was absorbed.
In the final sprint, it was Teutenberg across first, with Davidge second, then Eyerman, Emery and Carter. Saturn’s Kristy Scrymgeour was second in the field sprint for a seventh place finish.
