Back-to-back wins for Armitstead

Whitelaw remains atop general classification

Cervelo's Lizzie Armitstead won her second consecutive stage on Thursday, winning the sprint from a small group on the 129km fourth stage of the Tour De l’Ardéche.

Armistead topped France's Christel Ferrier-Bruneau and Lotto's Grace Verbeke to win on a hilly day. Her teammate Sharon Laws lost ground on overall leader Vicky Whitelaw, dropping three seconds behind in the dash to the line. She is now four seconds back on the general classification.

“In the final 5 km today there was seven of us including Carla, Sharon and myself,” explained Lizzie Armitstead. “Carla worked hard for the last 5 km at the front while Sharon watched the leaders allowing me to get into a good position for the sprint. Grace Verbeke started the sprint and I won it. The team was outstanding today and worked very hard and I really thank them.”
