A super strong ORICA-AIS squad delivered Nettie Edmondson to her first professional victory. En route, they capitalised on bonus seconds on offer on each of the stage's intermediate sprints and took third on stage three, gaining additional time bonues. These seconds allowed Edmondson to jump up to first on general classification after she won the third and final stage in China.
“This is pretty crazy. It’s the first time I’ve won a yellow jersey in this kind of tour. It’s really special, but more amazing is how much my team backed me. I’m not the strongest sprinter here, but we have a strong team, and I was fastest because of them. They were brilliant all week.” - Nettie Edmondson
