OVO Energy Women's Tour 2017

Wow, that was a toughie. Super-long stages and demanding terrain made for a great edition of the OVO Energy Women’s Tour. Kasia Niewiadoma may have wrapped up the general classification on the first day but it was there was still some great racing, especially on the fourth day in Chesterfield. The first half of the stage especially must have been on of the hardest parcours of the year.

Here’s a bumper selection from five great days of racing in the UK. We’re busy working on a new project over the next few weeks, more about that on Friday! Our next race is the ten day Giro Rosa in a few weeks time.
