Thomas wins inaugural Women's Tour of Scotland

Bigla rider tops Jackson on rainy finale

Bigla's Leah Thomas claimed the final stage win and overall victory in the inaugural Women's Tour of Scotland on Sunday, taking out the sprint ahead of teammate Elise Chabbey and Norway's Stine Borgli to secure the final time bonus. The move propelled Thomas ahead of stage 2 winner Alison Jackson (Tibco-Silicon Valley Bank) in the final standings with Borgli third overall.

In addition to the overall win, Bigla also claimed the points with Thomas, the mountains classification thanks to Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig and the young riders classification won by Nikola Noskova.

Uttrup Ludwig put in a late attack and looked set to solo to the victory only to be reeled back in on the final climb. The leading group splintered on the final ascent, with less than 10 riders fighting for the stage, but Thomas proved the strongest, taking out one of the biggest wins of her career .
