Australian National Time Trial Champion Shara Gillow (Orica-AIS) blitzed the field to take out stage 4 of the Thüringen Rundfahrt on Thursday, finishing ahead of Ellen van Dijk (Specialized-lululemon) and teammate Emma Johansson.

The Swedish chrono champion Johansson was able to retain her overall lead with her performance.

"It's very special to stand on the top step of the podium," said Gillow. "I was third at the EnergieWachtTour time trial when I first came over to Europe in April and I was third earlier this month at the final stage time trial in the Giro Rosa, too. To take the win today was really special."

Gillow stopped the clock at 28:52, 35 seconds quicker than Van Dijk (Specialized-lululemon). While Johansson was 39" slower than Gillow, she was substantially quicker than the other overall contenders.

"I don't put out time trials where I start easy," Johansson said. "I never hold back. I go all in all, all the time. The first half of the course was better for me because it was harder."

The stage drastically changed the composition of the top 10 on general classification. Johansson and Gillow now occupy the top two spots, with Gillow five seconds in arrears of the yellow jersey. Tatiana Guderzo (MCipollini Giordana) jumped up to third overall, 47 seconds down on Johansson.

"We showed the strength of our team today," said Orica-AIS sports director David McPartland. "We showed why we have the jersey and how we've been able to successfully defend it so far. I'm not counting our chickens before they hatch, but we feel good about our current position."

Johansson said there are three hard days of racing still to get through.

"Other teams will attack us and try to make it hard for us to keep the jersey," she explained. "We're in a good position with me in first and Shaz in second. Spratty [Amanda Spratt] did a good time trial, and she's moved up to seventh overall. It will make for some interesting days of racing."
