Internationale Thüringen Rundfahrt der Frauen
Stage 4: Zeulenrodaer Meer (ITT) - Stage Details

Dutch time trial champion Annemiek Van Vleuten displayed her consistency in the time trial event to finish in second place in this evening's race against the clock at Thüringen Rundfahrt.

Van Vleuten has been showing promising form in each stage so far and with another strong performance tonight it catapults the ORICA-AIS rider into second place overall, just eight seconds behind the eventual stage winner Ellen Van Dijk (Boels-Dolmans).

"There wasn't a metre of flat in the time trial course, it was up and down the whole way," said sport director Gene Bates. "It was a very demanding course and Annemiek produced a really fantastic ride."
