The HTC Highroad Women's team claimed their 41st win of the season with a victory in the prologue team time trial at the Internationale Thüringen Rundfahrt der Frauen. Garmin-Cervelo finished second, seven seconds back, while the Russian Federation squad earned third place at eight seconds.

With the team's victory, HTC Highroad's Ina-Yoko Teutenberg assumes the leader's jersey. The German's teammates Judith Arndt, Amanda Miller and Amber Neben hold second through fourth overall respectively all with the same time as Teutenberg.

"It is great to have such a strong lead right out of the prologue," says HTC Highroad Women's sport director, Jens Zemke. "With such a short distance, the seven seconds is a lot."

Zemke is confident that after today's results, the team can hold their position through the forthcoming stages.

"Tomorrow is a 119km course, and we will have to be smart with our strategy on how to keep this lead. Even though it is a significant amount of time that does not mean we want to waste any of it.

"Judith Arndt did an excellent job pulling for the girls today, they all rode wonderfully and are ready for the next six days."
