Lotto Thüringen Ladies Tour 2019 – Stages 4 to 6

The second half of the Lotto Thüringen Ladies Tour passed by in a blur. At six days, it’s the longest race we’ve done so far this year and on the late night drives to the hotel you start to wonder how you’ll manage the Giro Rosa, but I’m sure it’ll work out, it always does.

It was a good second half of the race for ‘our teams’, with CANYON//SRAM picking up two stage wins and Lourdes Oyarbide securing a podium spot in the GC with Movistar. Now for a few days to recover and get ready for our home race! It’s only a week until the OVO Energy Women’s Tour!
