Holland Ladies Tour 2007 (10th Edition)
Nordhorn - Denekamp, 19.9km Individual Time Trial
World Time Trial Champion, Kristin Armstrong (USA) stole the overall title in the Holland Ladies Tour by virtue of her stage winning performance from Nordhorn to Denkamp.
The American started the time trial in seventeenth place overall, 43 seconds down on leader, Marianne Vos (DSB Bank) and 39 seconds down on second placed Judith Arndt (T-Mobile).
Despite spirited rides by the non-TT specialists, Armstrong won the stage and snatched the overall victory. Race leader, Vos slipped back to seventh overall, whilst second-placed Arndt was agonisingly just 5 seconds down overall with a performance just 44 seconds slower than the American's on the time trial stage.
Armstrong also took the mountains title, whilst Vos was the best young rider and also the points competition winner.. Andrea Bosman (DSB Bank) won the sprints competition, whilst team-mate Ludevine Henrion won the race-long best fighting spirit award. Arndt was part of the T-Mobile team which won the team competition.
