Lauren builds form with 3 Thüringen top ten finishes

The seven day German stage race concluded on Thursday with Lauren showing some strong form building through the week.


The rolling terrain and strong start list offered a tough week of racing which served as an introduction to the second half of the season for Lauren.

“I really didn’t know where I was at coming into the week, I was really excited to get back in the peloton after about 6 weeks of training but also nervous to see where my level was”

On arguably to the toughest two stages; stage 3b and stage 6, Lauren placed 6th in both showing strong signs for the coming weeks.




“Stage 3B finished on top of a 300m 14% cobbled climb in the pouring rain, so that was exciting, it was just about fighting as hard as you could to the top of the wall. I was close to the podium but I’m happy with this result, it gives me some confidence moving forward”

“Stage 6, I was in the break from kilometer 5, so it was a big day. We got caught 100k later with 20k to go and immediately 2 girls went away, I think sprinted to 6th, I was happy with this, to be able to sprint after such a long break and over 2000m elevation, :-)”


Lauren is now preparing for La course which is on tomorrow in Paris, she will ride as a key support and lead out rider for super sprinter Kirsten Wild, who was 2nd last year.

La course will be broadcast live from 10pm AEST.
