Jolien D’hoore won today’s second stage of the Aviva Women’s Tour, taking the win in a sprint finish from race leader Lisa Brennauer (Velocio-SRAM). The stiff breeze along the undulating 138-kilometre course failed to break up the peloton and it was left for a large group to fight for the win along Marine Parade in Clacton-on-Sea.

The 25-year-old Belgian had been hoping to lead out her Wiggle-Honda team mate Giorgia Bronzini, but the two became separated in the final corner, 250 metres from the line.
