Amgen Women's Race: Hall takes overall victory

Cuban Arlenis Sierra (Astana Women's Team) won the stage 3 of the Amgen Women's Race, out-sprinting Emma White (Rally Cycling) and Alexis Ryan (Canyon-SRAM) after a fast-paced circuit race.

Katie Hall (UnitedHealthcare) crossed the line in 20th place to win the overall ahead of Tayler Wiles (Trek-Drops) and Katarzyna Niewiadoma (Canyon-SRAM); Hall also won the Queen of the Mountains classification.

White's two second places on stages 1 and 3 brought her the green points jersey, seventh-placed Sara Poidevin was the best young rider.

The UCI Women's WorldTour continues to be led by Anna van der Breggen (Boels Dolmans) who is currently racing the Emakumeen Bira.

Listen to Hall talk about her overall victory in the latest Voxwomen video below.

How it Unfolded

The final stage was held in the state capital of California, Sacramento. The 3.5-kilometre circuit with six turns was raced 20 times for a total of 70km. An intermediate sprint with five laps to go offered sprint points and bonus seconds. Although the 29-second lead of yellow jersey Katie Hall was virtually insurmountable, the green points jersey was still up for grabs.

The first lap of the circuit was neutralised. There were attacks from the peloton right away, and after two laps, Ruth Winder (Team Sunweb) was the first to get a gap. She was joined by three other riders, but they were quickly caught again by the peloton. The race was controlled by UnitedHealthcare who put their riders at the front of the peloton, kept Hall out of danger, and did not let anyone get away.

Eight laps into the race, a group of seven riders briefly got a small advantage on the peloton, but they were soon reeled in. Halfway through the race with ten laps to go, the attacks quieted down a bit. Liane Lippert (Team Sunweb) made another short-lasting move, countered by 44-year-old Liza Rachetto (Hagens Berman Supermint) who was also quickly brought back.

Shannon Malseed (Tibco-Silicon Valley Bank) attacked just before the intermediate sprint and was joined by Brenda Andrea Santoyo (Swapit Agolico). The two went through the intermediate sprint 12 seconds ahead of the peloton.

Santoyo continued on after the sprint, but was caught a kilometre later. Jessica Cerra (Hagens Berman-Supermint) was the next to attack with four laps to go, and when she was caught, cyclo-cross star Katie Compton (US National Team) and Pernille Mathiesen (Team Sunweb) countered. This duo held an eight-second advantage coming into the third-last lap, but were then brought back by the UnitedHealthcare-led peloton. A final move came from Lily Williams (Hagens Berman-Supermint) who was caught on the penultimate lap.

The sprint trains were set up on the final lap, with Team Sunweb leading the pack for their sprinter, Californian native Coryn Rivera, at the two-kilometre sign. On the final kilometre, Trixi Worrack (Canyon-SRAM) led out Alexis Ryan who sped towards the finish along the left-side barriers. Emma White (Rally Cycling) sat behind a teammate for a long time and went out into the wind late.

Arlenis Sierra was brought to the wheel of Alexis Ryan by her teammate Sofia Bertizzolo, could accelerate in Ryan's slipstream and went past her on the last 50 metres to claim the stage victory ahead of White and Ryan.
