Lisa Brennauer (Ceratizit-WNT) claimed a repeat victory in the German road race championships on the Sachsenring, besting Charlotte Becker (Team Arkéa) and Tanja Erath (Canyon-SRAM) in a sprint.

The 98km race on the hilly auto racing circuit kicked off with an attack by Adelheid Schütz but she was quickly reeled in and the peloton remained together through the halfway mark when Schütz again attacked with Dorothea Heitzmann.

The duo gained a minute's lead on the peloton but an attack from Brennauer and Erath sparked the chase with 35km to go. As the pair were about to be caught, there was a counter attack by Svenja Betz (RSG Gießen Biehler).

Betz caught and passed Schütz, who was then caught by the peloton, and put in an impressive ride to remain clear coming into the final kilometre.

Behind, Brennauer attacked, sparking moves from Trixi Worrack (Trek-Segafredo) and Clara Koppenberg (Equipe Paule Ka) and shrinking Betz's lead to mere seconds.

With 500m to go, the escapee was finally caught and Brennauer claimed the win.

The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
