The women's Tour of Flanders held on Sunday in Belgium marked the third round of the World Cup series. The 158-rider women's field lined up in Oudenaarde for the 144.9km race, which covered a total of 10 climbs and five sectors of cobbles. The stellar field included previous World Cup leader Lizzie Armitstead (Boels-Dolmans), world champion Pauline Ferrand-Prévot (Rabo-Liv) and Belgian champion Jolien D'hoore (Wiggle Honda),
It was Elisa Longo-Borghini (Wiggle Honda) who stole the show, however, with a solo win. She broke away with 35km to go and took the victory by nearly a minute over her teammate and runner-up D’hoore, while Anna Van Der Breggen (Rabo-Liv) was third. D'hoore's podium performance put her back into the lead of the World Cup standings.
