Did she? What race?

The only thing thats been about her lately is if she's going to seek out a new team or retire and finish her degree

If you are talking about the Tour de l'Ardeche in France? Its only a 6 stage small race that ended on the 8th September with her winning the 3rd and final 6th stages.

Also, she was the only "big" name female cyclist there. It was a tour in the park really http://www.tcfia.com/

Not a big race, but with her talking of retirement, the race result has been trumped in the news by that  3

Would have still been worth at least a mention surely? Looking at the website it seems a little more than a tour in the park. Website not easy to navigate though.

Interesting to note that she was there as part of a mixed team consisting of riders whose own teams didn't want to attend.

This was an interesting read http://marijndevries.nl/?p=5276

Apparently not.

The media (online and print) do not consider her and her sport not newsworthy, only her possible retirement from it.
