Aviva Women's Tour
Stage 4: Nottingham to Stoke-on-Trent - Stage Details

Australian champion Amanda Spratt finished in the front group on the penultimate stage of the Aviva Women's Tour today to maintain her high position in the general classification.

The 119km stage saw a late breakaway attempt swallowed up just before the line, concluding with a reduced bunch sprint into Stoke-on-Trent.

Marianne Vos (Rabo-Liv) accurately timed her effort to take the victory and ten bonus seconds, causing her to jump up one place above Spratt overall.

Spratt, along with teammate Gracie Elvin, once again showed their top form today, both making it into a final select group that established over the tough Queen of the Mountain sprints. 

"Today was super fast all day from the start," explain Elvin after the stage. "There were a lot of teams interested in getting a break up the road today including us."
