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.
Gracie Elvin was caught up in a crash in the final 600metres, leaving ORICA-AIS unable to contest the stage result, however sport director Gene Bates was very pleased with the overall strong performances from the riders throughout the week, capped off with a high placing with Spratt.
"The break was only 100metres ahead of the peloton in the end," explained Bates. "It was touch and go whether or not they would catch them."
