Joëlle Numainville and Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio both slotted into the top 10 for the second consecutive stage in Thüringen Rundfahrt. A breakaway between Amanda Spratt (Orica-AIS) and  Elana Cecchini (Canyon-SRAM) dominated the day with the two riders staying away by over four minutes. Spratt won the day while Cecchini took over the race lead.

Numainville followed in the chase group, finishing ninth with Moolman-Pasio tenth. Moolman-Pasio is sixth overall while Numainville moved up to eleventh. "It was hard on the climbs today," Numainville said. "We wanted a rider in the break today. That was the plan. Ashleigh and I were up there. I felt strong today. The form is there and the team is working well together. Tomorrow is the last day and we will keep trying until the end."

Ashleigh Moolman Pasio sets the pace and forces a small break on the longest climb of the day. Only Johansson and Spratt can follow. Thüringen Rundfarht 2016 - Stage 6 a 130 km road race starting and finishing in Schleiz, Germany on 20th July 2016.
