Judith Arndt of Team T-Mobile won the second stage of the Holland Ladies Tour, moving into the overall lead. German women dominated the day, taking first, third and fourth in the stage, and first and second overall.
Arndt, Irene van den Broek (AA Drink Cycling Team) and Trixi Worrack (Equipe Nürnberger Versicherung) escaped with only eight kilometres to go, and stayed away until the end with a scant 10-second lead over the peloton, led by Arndt's team-mate Ina-Yoko Teutenberg.
"We took turns to attack. Either one of us would get away, or we would set up a sprint for Ina," Arndt said on the team's website, t-mobile-team.com. "I attacked going into a corner around eight kilometres from the line. Trixi went with me, and shortly afterwards we bridged to Irene van den Broek who had already been off the front for a while," added Arndt. "It was just a coincidence that I was the T-Mobile rider that got away in the winning attack."
Worrack is now second overall, ahead of Marianne Vos of DSB Bank, who won the first stage.
