2017 Lotto Thuringen Ladies Tour – Stage 6

All good things come to an end – and the Thuringen Rundfahrt is no exception. I didn’t know what to expect, other than Sean said that I would like this race. And he was right. I really like this race. Well organised, fair amount of spectators, good courses and a stunning countryside. The people were lovely and I even got to use my rusty German, much to the amusement of the locals. It’s been good fun, danke schon!

I’m off to Frankfurt now, tomorrow morning I will be flying to Lyon, because this ride never slows down.
