Lisa Brennauer sprinted to her second German national title in two days, adding the road title to the time trial title she won a day earlier. She outsprinted her Specialized-Lululemon teammate Trixi Worrack, who took second. Third place went to Martina Zwick (Bigla).

The women rode 7 laps of the 17.2 km circuit course in Baunatal, for a total of 120,4 km. An early break got away and had a lead of up to two minutes. On the fourth lap, Romy Kasper (Boels – Dolmans) moved up to join them, and soon she and Christina Koep (Koga Ladies) were alone in the lead. They took nearly a minute lead into the sixth lap, ahead of a 40-woman strong field containing all the favourites.

Koep fell back, and soon the break was entirely over. A group of 23 went into the final lap, with newly crowned time trial champion Brennauer jumping into the lead. She had a gap of about 40 seconds going into the final 10 km. Trixi Worrack (Specialized-LuluLemon) and Claudia Lichtenberg (team) gave chase.

Worrack moved up to her trade team teammate, but Brennauer outsprinted her to take the victory and her second national title in two days.
