Brit Emma Pooley (AA Drink-Leontien.nl) stamped her authority on the 2012 Cycliste Feminin International de l'Ardeche in France, winning the final stage and the overall classification.

Defending champion Pooley was already at the top of the GC going into the final stage to Saint-Martin-d'Ardèche after winning stage three. Instead of taking an armchair ride to the line she took a fine solo win to underline her impressive form, coming home 3-43 ahead of Tayler Wiles (USA).
