International Thüringen Rundfahrt
Stage 6: Schmölin - Stage Details

Emma Johansson was awarded bunch time after narrowly avoiding a crash in the last corner of the sixth stage of Thüringen Rundfahrt. The race leader maintains her firm grasp on the yellow jersey ahead of the final day of racing. Johansson has a 32” advantage over teammate Shara Gillow and 1’31 on Lisa Brennauer (Specialized-lululemon) in third.

“The way the stage played out worked in our favour reasonably well, but we still had a hard day. When you have the yellow jersey, there’s always extra pressure and stress. There’s never one second where anyone can relax. It takes its toll. We’ve had the lead since the first stage, so we’ve worked like this for six days now. I think everyone’s happy we have only one more day to go.” - Sport Director Dave McPartland
