German champion Ina Teutenberg claimed the first road stage victory in the Thüringen Rundfahrt, taking home the bunch sprint in Gera by a generous margin over Monia Baccaille (MCipollini) and Lizzy Armitstead (Garmin-Cervelo). The victory extended the HTC-Highroad rider's margin in the general classification, which she leads over teammate Judith Arndt by eight seconds. Armitstead moved into third in the rankings, now at 11 seconds.

Coming into the stage, Teutenberg was clad in the yellow jersey after her team took out the opening team time trial. With a mountainous stage on Wednesday, the main race contenders took a back seat to the opportunists.

The main breakaway of the day was from cyclo-cross champion Helen Wyman (Horizon Fitness), who waged a solo assault on the peloton. She was finally reeled in by the HTC-led peloton with 9km to go.

Through her exploits, however, Wyman took the lead in the sprint classification after being away for two of the intermediate sprints, while Svetlana Boubnenkova (Russia) claimed the day's sole classified climb. Amy Pieters (Skil-Koga) is the best young rider in the race.
