Grace Brown (Team BikeExchange) has again demonstrated just how well-equipped she is for the transformation from worker to leader, grasping a podium at the Tour of Flanders to add to her first Women’s WorldTour victory at Brugge-De Panne and consolidating her place as a key rider to watch in those tough one-day races. 

The 28 year old came third at the cobbled Classic, beaten by Lisa Brennauer (Ceratizit-WNT) in the small group that sprinted for the lower steps of the podium behind solo winner Annemiek van Vleuten (Movistar Team).
