20th International Thüringen Rundfahrt for Woman
Stage 6: Zeulenroda - Zeulenroda, 108.7 km

Amber Neben (Team Flexpoint) started the final stage of the 20th Thüringen Rundfahrt in the leaders jersey with a gap of two seconds on Judith Arndt. The stage was another tough one with three climbs over the Dörtendorfer Berg. At the first climb it was Amber Neben (Team Flexpoint) who attacked. Judith Arndt (T-Mobile), Emma Pooley (Team Specialized) with Neben's team mate Susanne Ljungskog quick to bridge across in support of Neben's attack.

The first intermediate sprint was won by Judith Arndt ahead of Amber Neben. The time bonus put Judith Arndt 1 second closer to Neben in the overall ranking. On the next climb it was Team Flexpoint who attacked again but T-Mobile tried to control the race.

Just before the second bonification sprint it was Susanne Ljungskog (Team Flexpoint) who attacked. She won the sprint. A few seconds later it was Judith Arndt who took second just ahead of Amber Neben. The time bonus tied Judith Arndt and Amber Neben for the final win; but due to the thousandths of seconds in the time trial the overall win would go to Arndt if it nothing changed.

After the sprint Karin Thürig went on the counter attack on Ljungskog but couldn't catch her at the finish line. Ljungskog won the stage with a lead of 1.13 on Thürig and 2.33 on the first chasing group with all the favorites. Angela Brodtka won the sprint for 3rd. Valen was 4th and Düster 5th. Meanwhile behind Neben and Arndt shadowed each other in attacks for the yellow jersey finishing in the peloton giving Arndt the victory based on her better time in the time trial.

Judith Arndt (T-Mobile) is the overall winner. Amber Neben (Team Flexpoint) is second in the same time. Noemi Cantele (Bigla) is 3rd at 2.03. Susanne Ljungskog and Emma Pooley completed the top 5. Only 45 riders completed this very tough stage race for woman.
