Marianne Vos (Rabo Liv) won the fifth stage Thüringen Rundfahrt, the second for her in the race. The leader remains Ellen van Dijk (Dolmans Boels) after her win in yesterday’s time trial.

Vos took the sprint win out of a 15-rider group ahead of Elena Cecchini (Canyon-SRAM) and Annemiek van Vleuten (Orica-AIS).

Eugenia Bujak (BTC City Ljubljana) was very active on the day, winning the first mountain bonus and taking over the climber’s jersey.

It is currrently an all-Dutch GC as Annemiek van Vleuten is second overall, 13 seconds behind van Dijk while Vos moves up into third, 30 seconds back.
