Noemi Cantele of Team Bigla won the third stage of the Internationale Thüringen Rundfahrt der Frauen, and she took over the leader's jersey as well. She attacked out of an escape group to win by 47 seconds over Emma Johansson (AA Drink Cycling Team) and Kimberly Anderson (Team Columbia Women).

"In the first two stages all my attempts to get away from the field were unsuccessful because the Germans caught me every time," Cantele said. "When Trixi Worrack's attack failed today, I took a chance. Thank God I came through, because Trixi came after me. Some time it just had to work."

The stage ran 104.7 km over a rolling course. Cantele was in a 10-woman strong escape group, from which she broke away 18 km before the finish line. She was able to build up a 47 second lead over the first of her former escape companions, which also included Judith Arndt, Trixi Worrack, Christine Soeder and Karin Thürig. The escape group had formed 45 kilometres into the race.

Cantele took over the leader's jersey from Priska Doppmann, who was tired after her efforts the previous day and finished only 24th, 2'21 down. Johansson is now second overall and Arndt third.
