The Specialized-lululemon team won Saturday afternoon's stage 4b at the Energiewacht Tour, a 26.5km team time trial, with a 40-second margin over runner-up GreenEdge-AIS.

The Stichting Rabo Women Cycling Team of race leader Marianne Vos finished third at 1:14 and as a result Vos surrendered the yellow jersey to Ina Yoko Teutenberg of Team Specialized-lululemon. Teutenberg's teammate Ellen van Dijk moves into second overall at seven seconds, while Vos dropped to third, 43 seconds back.

"I love the team time trial so I was really looking forward to this stage," said Teutenberg. "The whole team has raced really well all week and it's nice to be able to move ourselves into the race lead. Let's hope we can defend it tomorrow."

"It was such a great ride," said Team Specialized-lululemon directeur sportif Ronny Lauke. "They all looked great and at one point they were doing 50km/h into the headwind. Overall this whole week has been great so far and I'm really happy with their performance.

"We still have one more stage remaining so we can't let our guard down yet," he added. "Marianne Vos is sitting in third place and you can never underestimate what she can do."

The Energiewacht Tour concludes on Sunday with a 137.2km stage in Slochteren.
