Lotto Thuringen Ladies Tour: Brennauer wins stage 4 in Gera

Rivera continues to lead the overall standings

Lisa Brennauer (Wiggle High5) won stage 4 at the Lotto Thüringen Ladies Tour on Thursday. The German all-rounder won a reduced bunch sprint in Gera ahead of Ellen van Dijk (Sunweb) and Elena Cecchini (Canyon-SRAM).

Stage 1 and 3 winner Coryn Rivera (Sunweb) continues to lead the overall classification ahead of Brennauer by six seconds and van Dijk by 16 seconds.

On stage 4 of the Lotto Thüringen Ladies Tour, the peloton rode a flat stage from Gera to Meerane and back to Gera, where they had to do another short lap before finishing on the market in the city centre, for a total of 118km.

A large breakaway of 19 riders formed early on and made it to the first QOM together, the famous 'Steile Wand', a scenic cobblestone climb in Meerane. The rain poured on the riders as they climbed over the cobbles with fans lining the streets to cheer on the race. Brennauer was in the move and had a puncture, which sent her back to the main field.

Although the breakaway had a two-minute lead, teams Wiggle High5 and FDJ chased to close the gap, only for a new five-rider move to set sail. That too was snuffed out. Lucinda Brand (Team Sunweb) and Alice Barnes (Canyon-Sram Racing) were the last two make their breakaway attempts and entered the final circuit with 15 seconds ahead of the main group.

The pair weren't strong enough to hold off the reduced bunch over the final circuit, as Wiggle High5 set up Brennauer for the victory.
