Sabrina Stultiens takes first victory for WaowDeals with her Aura SLX

Stultiens takes the victory during the first stage of the Emakuum Bira Tour
One of the oldest races on the Women WorldTour calendar and also the first victory of Sabrina Stultiens and her WaowDeals teammates this year. The Dutchie showed she was the strongest today by winning solo in the first stage of the Emakuum Bira Tour.

The first stage contained a hilly track with a distance of 108km. It was a tough race as the women had to overcome three categorized hills before arriving in the Basque village of ‘Legazpi’.

The stage was colored with some big names in women cycling. The Dutch Anna van der Breggen and the South African Moolman rode away from the peloton during the final of this first challenge. Only a strong Stultiens could follow these giants. In the last km, Stultiens showed that she was the strongest by attacking Van der Breggen and Moolman. She crossed the finish line solo and had the time to enjoy her first victory of the season.

Together with her WaowDeals teammates, she will defend her leader jersey in the upcoming stages. Starting on Sunday with an indivudual time trial of 26,6km.
