Today’s stage was rather uneventful, not too much happened! There were a few crashes and unfortunately one of my Australian team mates, Shara Gillow fell hard- but she’s a tough cookie and was able to get up and rejoin the main group!

I sat out the first intermediate sprint but managed to score a bonus second in the second intermediate sprint, and then it was time to focus on the finish.

Australia did a fair bit of work today to ensure I was at the finish with the leaders; I felt great and had a good position during the final kilometres. Kirsten Wild got the jump today and won the stage, Ina Teutenberg just beat me for second place. 3rd is ok, but of course I’m still hoping for a better result!! I am now placed 3rd on the tour’s general classification.
