Rogno, Italy (September 9, 2007)
Powers completed the largely flat, 23-kilometer course in 34:10, only 48 seconds behind Switzerland’s Karin Thurig who took home the first place prize. Sara Carrigan of Australia earned a second place finish in the UCI 1.2-rated event, coming in 29 seconds ahead of Powers.
With other recent national team successes such as Kristin Armstrong’s
(Boise, Idaho/Team Lipton) recent overall victory at the Holland Ladies Tour, the American women look to be on good form heading into the season’s final stretch.
