RideLondon Classique: Wiebes wins stage 1

Lorena Wiebes (Team DSM) has picked up where she left off: Three years after winning the 2019 RideLondon Classique, the Dutch sprinter was first to the line on stage 1 of the 2022 edition, the first RideLondon Classique to be held as a three-day stage race.

Anna Henderson (Team Jumbo-Visma) animated the final of the stage with a solo breakaway, attacking after the intermediate sprint on the first crossing of the finish line. Henderson won both mountain sprints and held an advantage of up to 1:40 minutes but was eventually caught on the last 340 metres uphill to the finish.
