Stage 2

Hellendoorn - Hellendoorn, Individual TT, 20.5km


Race Writeup

Trixi Worrack (Équipe Nürnberger) won the TT by a single second form Dutch TT Champion, Mirjam Melchers van Poppel (Team Flexpoint) and Judith Arndt (Team Columbia). Although she was 'only' fifth, Kirsten Wild (AA Drink) was just 3 seconds behind the winner and managed to beat race leader, Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (Team Columbia) by seven seconds to take the lead on General Classification.

So tightly packed is the top ten on General Classification, that the difference is only 33 seconds. The top is separated by just 4 seconds. With four stages to come, with bonus tine sprints in each, as well as at the stage finishes, the race is still wide open.
