Angela Hennig-Brodtka (DSB Bank) won the opening stage of the Internationale Thüringen Rundfahrt der Frauen. She won after 61.9 kilometers starting and ending in Schleusingen, Germany, in a mass sprint ahead of Equipe Nürnberger's Regina Schleicher and Italian Noemi Cantele (Team Bigla).

"My DSB Team worked perfectly for me," said Hennig-Brodtka. "But after the Krasna Lipa Tour I knew that I was doing well."

At the Krasna Lipa Tour Hennig-Brodtka won not only the overall title, but also the point and mountain jerseys.

It was a very active stage, with many attacks, but a group didn't get away successfully until there were only 10 kilometres left. That seven-rider strong group only had a lead of 20 seconds, and the sprinters' teams reeled it back in with one kilometre to go, setting up a mass sprint of some 50 riders.

World time trial champion Hanka Kupfernagel was one of the most active racers of the day, escaping several times. Racing in the colors of the German National Team, Kupfernagel finished fourth on the stage.

Nürnberger's Trixi Worrack took the climber's jersey by winning the third climb of the day. The sprinter's jersey went to Cantele.

Wednesday's Stage 2 runs 104.7 kilometers around Gera.
