Van Vleuten wins Boels Ladies Tour

Ensing nabs final stage

Annemiek van Vleuten (Orica Scott) wrapped up the overall victory at the Boels Ladies Tour, finishing safely in the peloton on Sunday's sixth and final stage. Alé-Cipollini's Janneke Ensing soloed away in the finale to nab the stage victory.

The 159.7-kilometre finale took the peloton on three trips around a lumpy circuit in Sittard. An 11-ride break jumped clear in the early goings, and an Orica Scott-led pack was content to give them some breathing room, with no serious threats to Van Vleuten's lead in the move.

The parcours whittled away at the pack over the course of the afternoon, with a few splits opening up after the midway point of the stage. As the peloton began to reform, Ensing jumped away with Katarzyna Niewiadoma (WM3 Cycling) and bridged to the break up the road.

Ensing, Niewiadoma, Christine Majerus (Boels Dolmans) and Lucinda Brand (Team Sunweb) then left the other escapees behind to form a dangerous lead quartet, but Niewiadoma was not content with the company and made a dig to solo away. Ensing and Brand chased her down, however, and then Ensing put in a move of her own, quickly putting her former companions into the rearview mirror.

The Dutchwoman stayed clear off the front the nab the stage victory 30 seconds clear of Brand, with Niewiadoma taking third a further five seconds back.

The pack came home 1:10 down on Ensing. Van Vleuten, safe and upright in the bunch, sealed the overall victory, with a 43-second advantage over GC runner-up Anna van der Breggen (Boels Dolmans). Sunweb's Ellen van Dijk rounded out the overall podium in third, 1:03 down.
