The victory had gone to Lorena Wiebes (Team DSM) who had raised her arms in victory after crossing the line ahead of the pack along the seafront in Southend on Sea.

When Hosking eventually stopped next to Lizzie Deignan the pair were still uncertain of the results, with Hosking asking her team staff if she was second or third.
