Marta Lach takes second at LOTTO Ladies Tour stage four

Marta animated the race by initiating the race-winning move, before sprinting to second place. With today's result, she moves up to sixth place on GC.

"I was super motivated to carry out our team tactics today," explained Marta Lach, "The plan was to attack at some point and Hanna did a good job on the climb. We tried to go again after that with Alice, but the group was too big. At 25km to go there was another climb so I attacked there with one rider from Fenix Deceuninck and a rider from SD Worx followed us. We were going full gas to try to get as much of a gap as possible so the peloton couldn't catch us. In the end, I gave everything I had in the sprint but I took second... again, I'm second on my birthday! But I'm happy. All of our team gave everything today. The girls were perfect. Hanna split the group really well, Franzi was covering everything while I was in the breakaway and Alice got another top 10. So far this week we've been fourth, third and now second so let's see what happens during the next stages".
