OVO Energy Women's Tour: Vos wins stage 2

Deignan second and Roy third, Vos takes overall lead

Marianne Vos (CCC-Liv) won stage 2 of the OVO Energy Women's Tour, a circuit race at Kent Cyclopark. Vos was strongest in the slightly uphill sprint after 25 laps of the 2.5-kilometre course, easily beating Lizzie Deignan (Trek-Segafredo) and Sarah Roy (Mitchelton). Due to time bonifications picked up at the finish and an intermediate sprint, Vos also takes over the overall lead and the green jersey.

After one neutral lap, the race was on from the start in the sunshine, a welcome change from the rain on stage 1. Alice Barnes (Canyon-SRAM), Ellen van Dijk (Trek-Segafredo), Leah Kirchmann (Team Sunweb), and Gracie Elvin (Mitchelton-Scott) attacked right away, but they were caught again after two laps.

Boels-Dolmans as well as Trek-Segafredo, Canyon-SRAM, Team Sunweb, and CCC-Liv led the peloton on the next laps. Starting the sixth lap with 50 km to go, Elena Cecchini (Canyon-SRAM) had a small advantage, and the Italian committed to the move. Crossing the finish line after six laps, she was 30 seconds ahead.

With the first intermediate sprint coming up after ten laps and bonus seconds on offer, the sprinters' teams gradually reduced the gap and reeled in Cecchini halfway through lap eight. This first intermediate sprint was won by Vos ahead of Deignan and Coryn Rivera (Team Sunweb).

The next intermediate sprints came after laps 15 and 20. The sprinters were eager to make the most of their opportunities and had their teams keep the peloton together, with Alé Cipollini, Movistar Team, and Team Virtu Cycling also sharing the work.

Alé Cipollini upped the pace on the lap before the second sprint, but it was Sheyla Gutierrez (Movistar Team) who was first to the line, ahead of Rivera and Sofia Bertizzolo (Team Virtu Cycling). The third intermediate sprint was won by Rivera's teammate, German champion Liane Lippert who beat Trek-Segafredo duo Deignan and Elisa Longo Borghini.

From there, only five laps remained to the finish, and a bunch sprint was nearly inevitable. With three laps to go, overnight race leader Jolien D'hoore (Boels-Dolmans) worked to keep things together for her teammate Amy Pieters who eventually finished in 14th place. Team Sunweb and Trek-Segafredo took control on the final laps.

The finishing straight was slightly uphill, and nobody could match the acceleration of Marianne Vos who took a commanding victory. Vos is now nine seconds ahead of stage runner-up Deignan who took the light-blue jersey for the best British rider. Vos also leads the points classification. As there were no QOM sprints on stage 2, Christine Majerus (Boels-Dolmans) continues to lead the mountain classification. Rivera defended her lead in the intermediate sprint classification.

The OVO Energy Women's Tour continues Wednesday with stage 3 from Henley-on-Thames to Blenheim Palace.
