Internationale Thüringen Rundfahrt der Frauen
Stage 6: Schleiz to Schleiz - Stage Details

Australian champion Amanda Spratt had an impressive ride today on the penultimate stage of Thüringen Rundfahrt to claim the stage victory for ORICA-AIS.

Spratt launched into the race winning move out of a leading group of 15 riders which formed inside the final 50kilometres of the stage.

The 28-year-old worked well alongside her breakaway companion Elena Cecchini (Canyon-Sram) and the duo were able to open up a significant advantage of four minutes over the chasers.

In a boost of confidence ahead of the Olympic Games in Rio, Spratt was too strong for Cecchini in the final kilometre.

"I was climbing really well and feeling really good," explained Spratt after her victory. "I just saw an opportunity not long after the main climb where it had already began to split up."
