In what was perhaps the least predictable stage of the week, Sarah Roy (Mitchelton-Scott) won the third day of the OVO Energy Women’s Tour in Royal Leamington Spa on Friday. The Australian sprinted clear of a group of 45 to win the sprint ahead of former world champions Giorgia Bronzini (Cylance) and Marianne Vos (Waowdeals.)

Team Sunweb's Coryn Rivera finished fourth having consolidated her overall lead winning the first intermediate sprint, with Vos moving up to second ahead of Brit Dani Rowe, who finished the day in tenth place.
