Adegeest outsprints Spratt to win Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race

Loes Adegeest (FDJ-SUEZ) has arrived on the Women’s WorldTour scene with a bang, winning the women’s Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race in a two-rider sprint against Amanda Spratt (Trek-Segafredo) after the duo went away on the Challambra Crescent climb nine kilometres from the finish.

Four seconds later, Nina Buijsman (Human Powered Health) led home what was left of the peloton.
