High Road's Ina-Yoko Teutenberg took the win in the final stage of the RaboSter Zeeuwsche Eilanden in the Netherlands, once more getting past local favourite Kirsten Wild in bunch sprint to take her second stage victory and the overall win thanks to the bonus seconds on the line.

After winning the first intermediate time bonus sprint, Teutenberg was in a position to win the overall, but needed to take the maximum bonus in order to beat Wild, who led the tour after taking the opening time trial on Thursday.

Wild started the sprint early, attacking around the last corner, but Teutenberg followed and was able to come around for the win. "It was a great move by Kirsten," said Teutenberg. "She is really strong and a good surprise attack like that could have worked. I had pretty good position though so I was able to jump right on her around the corner."

Teutenberg finished the short three day tour with the overall win plus the win in the points and sprint classifications. "I felt really good today," added Teutenberg. "I was pretty nervous for the final sprint. The team had done such a good job. It would have been real great for Alex for Kate to take the win but in the end it was still a good win for the team."
