Holland Ladies Tour 2007 (10th Edition)
Leek - Roden, 112.2km
Marianne Vos (DSB Bank) took back the race lead from Judith Arndt (T-Mobile) on Stage 4. The young Dutchwoman won the bunch sprint to take the stage.
It wasn't until the last 30 kilometres that the race opened up, but when it did, a group of 19 riders went away. The break included 4 T-Mobile riders : Teutenberg, Villumsen, de Goede and Beltman (but not race leader, Judith Arndt), two DSB Bank riders : Vos and Bekkering and two Team Flexpoint riders : Markerink and Gunnewijk. Also there were Valen (Platteland) and Bruins (van Bemmelen), amoungst others.
The bunch came back together before the finish, having lost some momentum when Teutenberg and Beltman dropped back to the bunch. With everything back together coming into Roden, Marianne Vos (DSB Bank) popped out of the front of the sprinters and managed to stay ahead to the line.
Vos' bonus, plus the fact that the race leader, Arndt finished in a group 24 seconds behind puts the Dutchwoman back into the orange leader's jersey, which she wore after the first stage.
