Zeulenroda, 106.4km

 

Race Writeup

Tatiana Guderzo (McCipollini Giordana) won the final stage of the 26th Thueringen Rundfahrt der Frauen in fine style. Attacking with 10km to go, Guderzo was 18 seconds ahead of a chase group at the finish line. In the small bunch sprint, Lisa Brennauer (Specialized Lululemon) crossed second gaining valuable bonus seconds to secure her third place overall. Anna van der Breggen (Sengers Ladies) was third. Overall leader Emma Johansson (Orica-AIS) crosed safely in the leading group, to secure overall victory. Shara Gillow (Orica-AIS) was with Johansson securing second place overall for the team. Orica-AIS also one the team classification.

Amy Cure (Australian National team), finished fourth on the stage, securing the best Amateur on the stage and overall for the tour. Johansson won the sprint jersey. Sengers Ladies had a good tour. Keeping her strong lead on the mountain classification Christine Majerus was joined on the podium with team mate Anna van der Breggen, who secured the U25 jersey. Most active on the final stage was Valentina Scandolara (McCipollini Giordana) who escaped in the first lap with Roxanne Knetemann (Rabo Women) and Doris Schweizer (Be Pink) and attacked again later in the race when the initial break had been caught.

The peloton chose to extend the neutralised the race when they passed the Amy Gillett memorial, just after the official start, This was the first time that the race had passed this point in six years. The last time was in 2007, when a devasting crash, involving photographer CJ Farquharson occured 200m up the road. It was an emotional day for the many Australians and indeed other members of the peloton and race entourage for a multiplicity of reasons.

The attack went early in the first lap, with three riders gaining a maximum of 58 seconds. Scandolar (McCipollini Giordana),Knetemann (Rabo Women) and Schweizer (Be Pink), worked well together for the first two laps. The gap however, started to come down. After 65km, Knetemann and Scandolara were the only two away with a 41 second lead. By the time they reached the bottom of the climb at Dörtendorf Berg [known locally as Hankaberg] for the third time the gap was down to 7 seconds. The leaders were caught over the top of the climb and an attack from Hanka Kupfernagel (GER) split the peloton into three. A group with 25 riders left in the front group. Lucinda Brand (Rabo Women) tried to attack, Scandolara was on her wheel and the pair managed to gain a small 6 second lead. 

As the two leader decended, the gap was out to 20 seconds. The chase from the remaining peloton started in ernest and the leaders were caught with 25km to go. Almost immediately, Liesbet de Vocht (Rabo Women) attacked with Lisa Brennauer (Specialized Lululemon) and Anna van der Breggen (Sengers Ladies). The peloton were all together again by the time they reached Gohren  for the final time. Tatiana Guderzo launched an attack just before the Dörtendorf Berg. She quickly opened up a gap. A small chase group formed behind her that included, Brennauer, van der Breggen, Cure, Lizzie Armitstead (Boels Dolmans), Brand (Rabo Women), Linda Villumsen (Wiggle Honda), Gillow (Orica-AIS), Georgia Williams (Be Pink), Adrea Graus (Bigla), Jessie Daams (Boels Dolman) and Johansson gave chase. 

In the end Guderzo was 18 seconds ahead of the group. The rest of the peloton crossed the finish line in small groups.
