Sarah Storey has rocketed to the team first victory this weekend. Winning by more than 3 minutes in the first round of the Rudy Project Time Trial, Sarah flew around the hilly 24 mile course.

After the race Sarah said, ‘It was a tough course but interesting to ride. It was windy and hilly, and it suited me. It's a good win to start the season for me and Horizon Fitness Racing Team."

‘I'm really pleased for Sarah. It's the team's first win, in our first major race. We all know how good Sarah is, and you only have to look at the nature of her win to see that. There are quality riders behind her and her winning margin was more than 3 minutes,' said team manager Stefan Wyman about the victory.

"I know Sarah would have liked to have been racing in the World Track Championships, but without a selection for that, she's clearly put everything into this event and has blitzed the field," added Wyman.

Sarah now continues her preparation for the GP Dottignies which she competes in next week in Belgium. A Classic style race in West Flanders, ranked as a UCI 1.2 event, it will be Sarah's professional road race debut.
‘I'm sure Sarah will do well in the race, but this race is a case of dipping her toes into a pro race with no stress. I'm sure Sarah will want to be at the front mixing it up with the World Champion, and to be honest, I wouldn't put it past her. She's so strong. But this weekend is part of the learning process, and it's what we are trying to do for all of our riders."
