Lorena Wiebes (Team DSM) won the general classification at the Simac Ladies Tour on Sunday, having held the yellow leader’s jersey from the opening stage. 

The 23-year-old, who became the European road champion in Munich last month, finished outside of a podium place just once at the six-day Dutch race, winning the first two stages to claim her 18th and 19th victories of the season.
