Internationale Thüringen Rundfahrt der Frauen
Stage 5: Greiz to Greiz - Stage Details

ORICA-AIS displayed great commitment and teamwork on stage five of Thüringen Rundfahrt, putting themselves in numerous situations to challenge for the stage win. 

Annemiek Van Vleuten rounded off a fantastic effort from the team by claiming third place in a close finale behind stage winner Marianna Vos (Rabo-LIv), which secures her second spot in the general classification for another day.

Last year's stage winner, Gracie Elvin was present in one of the main breakaways of the day. Alongside Linda Villumsen (United Health Care), the duo worked hard to establish a strong lead.

"It was one of the same stages as last year that we actually won," explained Elvin after the finish. "So we wanted to use similar tactics and get one or two of us in the early break and then play a numbers game in the final and that's exactly what we did."
