Third place again for Lisa Brennauer in Lotto Thüringen Tour Stage 2

Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling’s Lisa Brennauer continued her excellent start to her Lotto Thüringen Tour defence with a second straight third place in the second stage in Meiningen, eastern Germany. The former German Champion crossed the line just behind the photofinish, between Elena Cecchini (Canyon-SRAM) and Coryn Rivera (Team Sunweb) in the wet cobbled sprint.

“I’m happy with that,” Brennauer said. “The team had to do a lot of work today and they did a really good job. Everybody had to work really hard because there was a breakaway up the road. We had Grace [Brown] in there, and she was going really well.

“We were happy to have her in the breakaway, but other teams were there with two present, and also there were riders that are really dangerous on GC, so it was us and Canyon-SRAM taking the responsibility to bring it back.”

With another complicated, cobbled sprint, this time slick with the rain that had fallen in the middle of the 132km stage, Brennauer was once again placed at the head of the peloton by her teammates as a number of crashes brought down several riders.

“The final was pretty hectic, and the roads were wet, so there were lots of crashes,” Brennauer explained. “That’s always a pity. Grace was in one of the crashes, and we don’t know the outcome yet. She’s being checked up right now but we don’t know yet. I hope she’s able to race tomorrow because we will really miss her if she’s not.

“The last kilometre was pretty much straightforward, which was something that suits me pretty well, and I’m happy with the third place again,” Brennauer added. “It’s a good sign for the upcoming days I think.”

More time bonuses on the line mean that Brennauer now sits in third place overall, with Rivera retaining the lead she took on stage one, and also retains the Blue and White Jersey as Best German Rider. The former German Champion is placed ahead of most of her rivals in the general classification as the tougher stages approach.

“I think there weren’t many big changes amongst the GC riders,” she smiled. “But I’m really happy that the everybody from the team was there and they really helped me a lot!”
