Australian neo-pro Ruby Roseman-Gannon (BikeExchange-Jayco) had mixed feelings after stage 6 of the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift, pleased to have been in the day’s breakaway but with a hint of disappointment at how the race played out.

Roseman-Gannon ticked off the team’s first goal by making it into the hotly-contested 14-rider break that formed at the 80km to go mark and stayed away for most of the day, but could not take the race to the line in Rosheim despite feeling good.
