After this climb Spratt had to drop from the leading group in order to help her teammates in the bunch to protect the lead of Judith Arndt.

After 50 km of racing Orica-AIS got some help of Specialized-Lululemon and the gap started to come down. With 25 km to go the gap was down to 1.05. On the final climb of the day Longo-Borghini crossed the top as first and as she gathered enough points on the climbs during the stage the Italian takes over the KOM jersey from Claudia Häusler.

With 10 km to go Longo Borghini attacked out of the large break and quickly gained a big gap on the chasing group. In the meantime riders like Adrie Visser and Jessie Daams bridged up from the bunch to the chasing group as some others dropped back to the bunch.

With 3 km to go Longo Borghini had a 40 seconds lead on Visser and Daams, 55 seconds on the remaining riders of the big break and over one minute on the big bunch. Longo Borghini crossed the line solo ahead of Visser and Daams. Judith Arndt (Orica-AIS) retains the leaders jersey and holds a 5 second lead on Trixi Worrack (Specialised Lululemon) and 8 seconds on Emma Johansson (Hitec) with the final stage in Zeulenroda.
