Vuelta a Burgos Feminas' third stage was the day of redemption for Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig (FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope) as she won the sprint atop a short finishing climb in Ojo Guareña and took her first-ever Women’s WorldTour victory after having been close to success many times.

“Oh, finally! It is such a relief, the girls worked so hard,” an overwhelmed Uttrup Ludwig said before being swamped into a group hug by her jubilant teammates mid-interview.
