Teniel Campbell secured her first victory while racing for the Women’s WorldTeam BikeExchange on stage 6 at the Tour de l’Ardeche. Campbell won the race from a breakaway sprint ahead of runner-up Nina Kessler (TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank) and Lauretta Hanson (Trek-Segafredo).

"It's extremely special to win today in so many ways. After what transpired with the bikes yesterday, how everyone kept calm and found solutions instead of freaking out. How everyone remained motivated throughout what seemed at first chaotic! Is completely unreal," said Campbell.

Team BikeExchange woke up on the morning of stage 5 at the Tour de l'Ardeche to find their bikes had been stolen, and rival teams helped supply some of the riders with spare equipment to allow them to continue to race.

Leah Thomas (Movistar) leads the overall classification into the final stage with 9 seconds ahead of Mavi Garcia (Ale BTC Ljubljana) and Ane Santesteban (Team BikeExchange).

The penultimate stage offered the field a 138km race from Anduze to Goudargues. It was a lumpy stage with three categorised ascents before a flat run-in to Goudargues.

Campbell formed part of a 12-rider breakaway that included Kessler and Hanson along with Alba Teruel (Movistar), Ayesha McGowan (Liv Racing), Laura Tomasi (Ale BTC Ljubljana), Katia Ragusa (A.R. Monex), Amandine Fouquenet (Team Arkea), Mireia Benito and Agua Espínola (both Massi Tactic), Rossella Ratto (Bingoal Casino-Chevalmeire) and Silvia Valsecchi (BePink).

The breakaway gained more than five minutes on the main field holding that advantage with 30km to go.

A crash in the final 150 metres saw Tomasi crash. Campbell was fastest in the breakaway sprint, throwing her bike across the line to take the stage win ahead of Kessler and Hanson.
