Marianne Vos (Netherlands) broke the iron grip of Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (HTC-Columbia) in the Giro Donne Tuesday, winning the fifth stage out of a small, elite group. Tatiana Guderzo (Team Valdarno) came through in second, with Judith Arndt (HTC-Columbia) in third. Former leader Teutenberg finished 52nd on the stage, 5:20 down.

Stage 5 marked the first of the Giro with any significant elevation gain, and the tough profile allowed Vos to slide into a late-race breakaway including Guderzo, Arndt, Emma Pooley (Cervélo TestTeam), Mara Abbott (U.S. National Team), and Grete Treier (Michela Fanini-Record-Rox).

Vos and Guderzo escaped in the final kilometer and stayed away to the line, with Vos taking the two-up sprint. The win gave her the overall lead, ahead of Arndt by 21 seconds and Guderzo by 45.

Abbott finished the stage in fourth, nine seconds back, launching herself into 8th overall.

Manel Lacambra, the U.S. team director, was pleased with his squad’s performance. “Today was a difficult race with a very hard and steep final of 2km, at 20 percent,” he said. “Our team was good again and we are still in a good position to win the GC.“
