Iris Slappendel (Cervélo TestTeam) soloed to victory in the 134.5km final stage of the International Thüringen Rundfahrt. The Dutchwoman arrived in Zeulenroda 1:34 ahead of her former breakaway companions Trixi Worrack (Noris Cycling) and Andrea Bosman (Netherlands).

Olga Zabelinskaja (Safi-Pasta Zara) secured her overall victory with an 18th place finish on the final stage. The Russian bested runner-up Edita Pucinskaite (Gauss RDZ ORMU) by 2:56 and third-placed Noemi Cantele (HTC-Columbia Women) by 3:02.

"I am just so happy," said Slappendel. "It was my nicest victory ever. It is a fantastic day. When I made the final attack out of the breakaway, which was not working well anymore, I just took my chance and pushed.

"I made the gap very quickly and 10km ahead of the finish I had 50 seconds. I kept on going full speed towards the finish. I really enjoyed the last 2km as I was sure that I would win the race."

"It was an amazing win today," said Egon van Kessel, Sports Director, Cervélo TestTeam. "It was one of the nicest victories I have seen this season, it was just very impressive.

"The race today fit very well with our tactics. We wanted to have a breakaway and it worked. A breakaway with about 8 riders, including Iris, formed about 60km from the finish. When the second group came closer, Iris attacked and pushed all the way to the finish. The attack came with about 20km to go and Iris was really strong and confident and never looked back."
