Miller continues streak of impressive results in Europe

Apeldoorn, The Netherlands (April 22, 2007)—Brooke Miller (Los Altos, Calif./Team Tibco) continued her streak of impressive results in her first-career European campaign with a sixth-place finish in the Ronde van Gelderland on Saturday.

Racing as part of a four-woman squad for USA Cycling’s Women’s National Team, Miller placed sixth behind several of the world’s top sprinters including winner and reigning world champion, Marianne Vos of the Netherlands.

A 140-kilometer 1.2-ranked UCI single-day race, the Ronde van Gelderland serves as a prep event for the fourth round of the UCI Women’s Road World Cup scheduled for Wednesday in Belgium.

The sixth-place effort from Miller was her best finish in Europe since her introduction to the European peloton earlier this month. She had already placed 14th in the Tour of Flanders World Cup and eighth at the Drentse 8 van Dwingeloo. Miller also captured the spinter’s jersey in the Internationale Novilion Damesronde van Drenthe.

Other finishes for the national team on Saturday included Alison Powers (Boulder, Colo./Colavita-Sutter Home-Cooking Light) in 48th place, Rebecca Larson (Gainesville, Fla./Aarons) in 49th place, and Kori Seehafer (Louisville, Colo.) in 68th place. The Women’s National Team continues its first trip to Europe this season with La Fleche Wallone World Cup in Belgium on April 25, the Giro di San Marino in Italy May 4-6 and the Magi Pache Time Trial in Switzerland on May 6.
