Amy Pieters (SD Worx) capped an excellent day of racing for her and her team with a comprehensive victory on stage 2 of The Women’s Tour.

The 30-year-old was part of a 10-rider move that held off the main field before out-kicking Clara Copponi (FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope) and Sheyla Gutiérrez (Movistar Team) into the city centre after a day littered with heavy showers and autumnal temperatures.
