The second stage of Bira took the riders from Aduna to Amasa over 111km. The stage knew many climbs, comparable to Amstel Gold Race. According to DS Richard Groenendaal it was a difficult and heavy stage. "On the second climb we lost Amalie and Jolien. Amy, Christine and Eva held on in the bunch but were dropped one by one. As the final climb appeared Amy did a real strong effort and just missed podium finishing fourth."
