Düster wins in Schmölln

Sarah Düster (Cervélo TestTeam) won the fifth stage of the International Thüringen Rundfahrt, outsprinting breakaway companions Hanka Kupfernagel (Germany) and Adrie Visser (HTC-Columbia Women). Olga Zabelinskaja (Safi-Pasta Zara) remains atop the general classification with one stage remaining.

"I'm very happy with my victory today," said Düster. "I haven't felt that strong during the first few days of this Tour as the heat really got to me. But now, since yesterday as the temperatures have gotten lower I feel good.

"Today, it was tough for me as I had to close so many gaps, but I felt strong. My tactic for the final, which was a light downhill run with a curve, was to stay at the wheel of Hanka Kupfernagel and attack from there. All in all, I am very satisfied with my race and I have also to say thank you to my teammates as they did a really good job for me."

"Today we had quite a bit of activity in the first half of the race. A group of seventeen riders broke away at the beginning and soon after ten riders escaped from them, including Sarah Düster," said Egon von Kessel, Sports Director, Cervélo TestTeam. "Sarah was very much on the offensive and tried many attacks towards the finish. Though she was strong, she couldn't develop a big gap.

"At the finish, there was a very close sprint. After the judges reviewed it they awarded Sarah first place. It was a good race for us. Tomorrow our goal will be again to go for a stage win but we will not to take too many risks."

The sixth and final stage will take place on Sunday as the peloton faces a 134.5km course around Zeulenroda.
