Dutchwoman Kirsten Wild (Hitec-Products) won a bunch sprint to take victory at the Asda Women’s Tour de Yorkshire this morning. In what was an exciting final, a bunch kick had been in doubt until a three woman break, including local favourite world champion Lizzie Armitstead, was caught with just two kilometres to go.

Britain’s Lucy Garner (Wiggle-High5) finished a close second to Wild, with another Dutch rider, Floortje Mackaij (Liv-Plantur) taking third place. Despite Wild’s preparations for the track events at the Rio Olympics this summer, it was her fourth road win of the season.
