Shelley Evans (USA National Team) showed she’s going to be hard to beat in the sprint stages at the Tour of New Zealand, taking her second win from as many stages. Evans held off a two-pronged charge from Giant Pro Cycling in the final sprint, which landed Wong Wan Yiu and Liu Xin in second and third places respectively.

The race took some casualties today with Cath Cheatley dropping out of the New Zealand National Team due to injury before the racing commenced. Defending champion Amber Halliday is also out of the race, with the Australian Time Trial Champion crashing on a wet descent during the stage and being transported to hospital.

Evans continues to hold the general classification lead with four stages remaining. The victories in New Zealand represent Evans’ first in a International Cycling Union ranked race.
