Women's Tour of New Zealand: Hall wins stage two

Lauren Hall (USA) got the jump on the peloton in Masterton after 142km of racing to win the second stage of the Women's Tour of New Zealand with Lauren Kitchen coming in one second later. The stage win also sees Hall replace teammate Megan Guarnier as the race leader. 

With USA controlling affairs from start to finish, Hall repaid the work by her teammates to make it two wins in two days.

"Great race today by our team, we control the race until the final to ensure the stage win and to keep the lead. The Australian team is also very strong so tomorrow may not be me in the lead but I will pass on the jersey to another of my teammate, we will spread it around," Hall said.

Guarnier now leads the points and mountain classifications ahead of the 130km stage three from Carrington to Carrington.
