2009 Thüringen Rundfahrt (2.1) - Stage 5

The fifth stage over 115,8 km in and around Schmölln is won by World Cup leader Emma Johansson. Johansson won the stage in a sprint over compatriot Susanne Ljungskog. Sarah Düster finished as third at 30 seconds.

Johansson and Ljungskog attacked out of a break of twenty riders in the fifth (of six) lap. The two worked well together on the hilly course and in the uphill sprint it was Johansson who was the strongest.

Linda Villumsen, who finished as sixth, remains in the overall lead with one stage to go. The Danish Champion has to defend a 33 seconds lead on Vos and 40 seconds on Ljungskog.

Team report
Cervelo: Düster finishes third

Schmölln has hosted a stage for this event for the past decade. Today's was 115,8 km long with the Peloton completing a course around "the city with heart" 6 times.

"Sarah Düster once again had a very strong day. She followed Emma Johansson and Susanne Ljungskog in the final who attacked with 12 km to go," said Sports Director Philipp Mauduit. "Unfortunately she crashed in the last corner of the final, placing third. It rained again all day making the final very dangerous. Christiane, our best GC rider, finished in the main group but lost 2 minutes 38 seconds and is now 8th in the GC. Sarah is 6th in the GC after today's stage. Regina was also involved in a crash. Neither she nor Carla finished the race due to the bad weather today."

Tomorrow's final stage is 130 km around Greiz which this summer celebrates its 800th anniversary in the new region of Triebes. The stage will present 3 mountain sprints and 2 other point scoring opportunities for the riders.
