There have been all sorts of surprises in the results here. First, on stage 8a Mette Fisher ANDREASEN of Team SATS took the victory! Stage 8b saw Trixi Worrack rise to the top again, and then on stage 9 Susanne Ljungskog won. But the real story of stage 9 was that Dede Barry lost just over four minutes taking her pretty much out of contention for the overall victory.

The GC has taken a total shift over these three stages and once again when the dust settled Trixi Worrack is in the lead. Now Judith Arndt is in second place and T-Mobile’s Kim Bruckner sits in third.
