This event was won by Specialized-lululemon, who covered the 34 km course in the town of Dronten in a time of 41 minutes and 4 seconds. They were 19 seconds quicker than Orica-Green Edge and almost a full minute ahead of Rabobank in third place.

 

The win put Trixi Worrack into the race lead going into the third stage with four days of racing remaining.

 

"It was the last TTT test before worlds and it shows that we are in a good position with 10 days to go," said Team Sport Director Ronny Lauke.

 

"There are still a few minor things that we can do better. After winning all the important TTT's this season we can be confident but we definitely have a lot of respect for our competitors. The results have been close and it will be a close battle amongst the top teams for the TTT crown on September 16."
