20th International Thüringen Rundfahrt for Woman – Stage 1 Team Time Trial
From July 24 until July 29 the 20th International Thüringen Rundfahrt for Woman will be held. This stage race is really prestigious and every rider wants to perform well here. Last year it was Nicole Cooke (Univega, now Raleigh Lifeforce) who won ahead of Amber Neben and Trixi Worrack. This year Nicole Cooke is not at the start to defend her title due to an injury. Other winners in the past editions are among others Zoulfia Zabirova (2x), Theresa Senff, Mirjam Melchers, Hanka Kupfernagel, Edita Pucinskaite, Ina Teutenberg and Petra Rossner.

In the year Theresa Senff won (2005) the race started in minor after a tragic accident. In this edition the opening stage was cancelled when the Australian AIS team was hit by a car whilst preparing for the race. The accident caused the death of Amy Gillett, with her five teammates sustaining serious injuries.


Raleigh Life Force team beat the cobbles on their way to victory.
