Aviva Women's Tour - Race Overview

Australian champion Amanda Spratt retained fifth place overall for ORICA-AIS after the final stage of the Aviva Women's Tour.

The tour concluded with a 113.2kilometre stage into Kettering, with the day's early breakaway successfully staying away to the line. Lotta Lepisto (Cervelo-Bigla) sprinted to victory out of the leading group of seven that was just meters ahead of the peloton as they crossed the line.

"It's really great seeing Amanda finish highly on the general classification," Bates continued. "It's probably her best result this season and with the result coming on the hard, Queen stage of the tour, it really shows that she's in a really good place at the moment."
