April Tacey (Drops) secured her second stage victory at the Virtual Tour de France on Sunday. The British rider, who won the opening stage, sprinted to the stage 4 win ahead of Anna Henderson (Sunweb) and Lauren Stephens (TIBCO-SVB).

"It feels amazing to win another stage," Tacey said. "That race was really, really hard. Coming into the last hill, I about nearly lost it, and then going down I caught on and I just can't believe I won the sprint."
