by VeloClub

German rider Lisa Klein was best in the opening prologue of the Festival Elsy Jacobs on Friday, beating Amy Pieters (Boels Dolmans Cyclingteam) by fractions of a second over the 2.8 kilometre course.

Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig (Cervelo Bigla Pro Cycling Team) was third-quickest in Cessange, Luxembourg. She was a second off the quickest time.

“I was really concentrated to not make the same mistakes as in the prologue last year,” said Klein. “I have to say I had good legs, I felt it already in the warm-up. I’m very pleased.”
