Grace Brown (Team BikeExchange) delivered her second Women’s WorldTour win on the opening stage of the Vuelta a Burgos Feminas, continuing a roll of impressive results in 2021 which has seen the Australian rider step up onto the podium six times, or in half of her race starts.

Before October of 2020 Brown had never been on the podium in Europe but then the 28-year-old rider broke through with a second at Liège-Bastogne-Liège and a win at the 1.1 ranked Brabantse Pijl near the end of the year.
