Ruth Winder (Trek-Segafredo) avoided any mishaps to seal the overall victory on the final stage four Adelaide circuit at the Women's Tour Down Under 2020.

She beat Sunweb's Liane Lippert by five seconds with Amanda Spratt (Mitchelton-Scott) in third, six seconds down. The Australian, who took stage two, has won the overall victory every year since 2017.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
