Aafke Soet (WNT Rotor Pro Cycling) won the final stage of the Healthy Ageing Tour in Groningen on Sunday. The Dutchwoman attacked a decisive breakaway in the closing kilometres to take a solo victory. Mieke Kröger (Team Virtu) was second and Christine Majerus (Boels Dolmans) was third.

Amy Pieters (Boels Dolmans) won the overall title ahead of teammates Chantal Blaak, Majerus and Anna van der Breggen.

To say it was a successful week for Boels Dolmans would be an understatement. The team won four stages at the five-day, six-stage race. Van der Breggen won the opening time trial, Pieters won stage 2, and they won the stage 3b team time trial and Blaak won stage 4.

Pieters led the overall classification by 22 seconds ahead of teammates Blaak and 42 seconds ahead of van der Breggen heading into the final stage.

The stage 5 circuit race was held in Groningen where the peloton completed 14 laps around Vismarkt for a total of 94.3km.

A lead group emerged with Lisa Brennauer (Wiggle High5), Christine Majerus (Boels Dolmans), Winanda Spoor (GRC Jan Van Arckel), Jeanne Korevaar (WaowDeals) and late-bridgers Trixi Worrack (Canyon-SRAM), Mieke Kroger (Virtu), Natalie van Gogh (Parkhotel), Karlijn Swinkels (Ale Cipollini), Soet and Tatiana Guderzo (Hitec).

The leaders still held a 45-second lead ahead of the main field as they raced through the start-finish line for the final lap.

Soet, 20, made several attacks in the final 10km before the winning move stuck and she crossed the line with what has become a highlight win in her career.
