Wiebes takes revenge for a crash in the second stage of the Women’s Tour | NOW

Lorena Wiebes won the second stage of the Women’s Tour in Harlow on Tuesday. The 23-year-old Dutchman was by far the strongest in the bunch sprint after a 91.1 kilometer ride.

Wiebes started the sprint about 200 meters from the finish and did not relinquish the lead. The Team DSM rider left behind, among others, the Italian Barbara Guarischi and Shari Bossuyt from Belgium.

With her victory, Wiebes recovered well from the first stage. Then she had a nasty crash in the final kilometer of the ride. She was able to finish the stage, but couldn’t get involved in the battle for victory. The French Clara Copponi won and will also lead the general classification after the second stage.

Wiebes has been making a strong impression for weeks. She won all three stages and the final classification of the RideLondon Classique at the end of last month.

The Women’s Tour is organized for the eighth time and consists of six stages. The third stage starts in Tewkesbury on Wednesday and covers 107.9 kilometers, with a few climbs. The last kilometers are flat. Last year, the Dutch Demi Vollering took the overall victory in the United Kingdom.
