Vos active all day. She made the break, marked by Antoshina and the pair ensured they were able to stay away.
The tough course
had heavy rolling hills. It was up and down throughout. HTC Highroad,
especially Judith Arndt and Evelyn Stevens chased hard for 50km. Arndt had
been in chase group, but sat up to wait for the rest of her team and
overnight leader Charlotte Becker who was in second chase group. Once
together they regrouped and gave chase.
Vos and Antohsina kept great tempo and rode together, although Vos dropped Antoshina in the final 3 km.
done enough to put herself in the lead by 46 seconds ahead of Becker.
