Wearing the yellow jersey, Lotte Kopecky (Team SD Worx) has won her second Simac Ladies Tour stage in three days by sprinting to victory at the top of the Cauberg ahead of her teammate Lorena Wiebes and Kasia Niewiadoma (Canyon-SRAM).
After an attritional race with many attacks, Floortje Mackaij had made a solo move from a small front group with five kilometres to go and began the Cauberg with a 15-second advantage, but an attack by Niewiadoma quickly spelled the end of Mackaij’s dreams.
Instead, Niewiadoma pulled away from the rest of the favourites with Kopecky and Wiebes on her wheel, and Kopecky pounced at the top of the climb to win the stage.
More to come …
