Miller solos to stage victory

HTC-Highroad's Amanda Miller took the second international win of her career on Wednesday in stage three of Thüringen Rundfahrt, but did not unseat race leader Emma Johansson (Hitec Products_UCK), who still leads Miller's teammate Amber Neben by seven seconds in the general classification.

"Adrie [Visser] was in the first break of ten riders in the beginning," sport director, Jens Zemke said, "And eventually another six, including Amanda [Miller] bridged the gap, which stayed at about two minute for the majority of the stage.

"The break of sixteen was not riding too hard but everyone was working, while Hitec [Products - UCK] controlled the front of the peloton."

The final 12 kilometers before the finish hosted a series of attacks from all teams in the break, with the breakaway splitting behind Miller's effort.

"With about five hundred meters to go, Amanda attacked out of a hard corner and got a break of about five or ten meters," said Zemke, "Then she turned it on full gas to the finish, and won ahead of some really strong sprinters [including Lizzy Armitstead of Garmin-Cervelo] with Adrie Visser in fourth."

Claudia Häusler led home the race leader's group, 2:21 later.
