Villumsen Hitting Form Ahead of Olympic Games
10 Jun, 2012

New Zealandís Olympic-hopeful cyclist Linda Villumsen grabbed her first time trial win of the season, winning the third stage of Emakumeen Euskal Bira in Spain today.

Posting a time of 18:21 over the 13.4km course, the silver medallist in the time trial at last yearís world championships and the 2010 Commonwealth Games, finished three seconds faster than her Green Edge-AIS teammate and world champion Judith Ardnt.

"It's difficult to make a plan for a time trial," said Villumsen in commenting on the undulating course. "You just go as fast as you can. I don't think about how other people will ride the course. It makes no difference. It only matters how I ride. I go as fast I can from start to finish."

Villumsen's win gave GreenEDGE-AIS a sought-after stage win, and Arndt's result leaves the team well-poised on the overall ahead of tomorrow's final stage.

Villumsen is hopeful of being named in the New Zealand team later this month for the London Olympics.
