The 2014 UCI world champion for individual time trial Lisa Brennauer claimed stage 1 of the Ceratizit Madrid Challenge by La Vuelta at Boadilla del Monte five years after rising the German flag, already on Spanish soil, in Ponferrada. The WNT Rotor Pro Cycling specialist clocked 12’52’’ to better the time of triple runner up at the Danish national championships Pernille Mathiesen by 13 seconds before Lucinda Brand from The Netherlands took the second place, only 4 seconds down on the winner. It leaves the game wide open before stage 2 on the prestigious circuit in Madrid where time bonus is expected to make it a thrilling race on stage 2 before the arrival of Primoz Roglic and all the champions of La Vuelta 19.
