Kirsten Wild (Argos-Shimano) won the second stage of the Ladies Tour of Qatar ahead of Specialized-lululemon’s Ellen van Dijk and Trixi Worrack.

I feel like I’m running out of words to describe Marianne Vos. This Trofeo Alfredo Binda victory is her second straight World Cup win this season. And, follows her fourth cyclocross World Championship title.

I mean, what words are there for this kind of dominance? Invincible, implacable, irrepressible, unstoppable.

Vos won solo with an attack on the final climb at Binda. She’s a master descender, as she showed up last year when she railed the descent off the Passo di Mortirolo at the Giro Donne. Here, she holds off the chase, and crosses the line alone.

Tatiana Guderzo finished second, and Trixi Worrack of Specialized-lululemon added another podium finish to her collection by finishing third.

Next up for the women? The Ronde van Vlaanderen.

Loes Gunnewijk from GreenEdge won the European season-opener. Specialized-lululemon put two riders on the podium when Ellen van Dijk finished second and Trixi Worrack third. A twelve rider break formed on the Côte de Trieu, then Gunneswijk went up the road solo when the race hit the cobbles with 20 kilometers to go.

“Twenty kilometres before the finish, I attacked on the cobblestones, and I immediately got a gap,” Gunnewijk explained. “I rode alone for five kilometres, and then Ellen came up to me. We shared the work until the finish and I beat her in a sprint to the line.”

Trixi Worrack won the eight-up sprint for third ahead of Pauline Ferrand-Prevot of Rabobank. Full results are over at Wielerland, though not it appears on the official race site. Go figure.
