Emakumeen XXX Bira
Stage 4: Etxarri-Aranatz - Aralargo San Migel - Stage Details

Durango-Durango winner Annemiek van Vleuten took ORICA-SCOTT’s third consecutive victory today on the Queen stage in Emakumeen XXX Bira.

The Dutch time trial champion was able to take the victory from a significantly reduced group after attacks came in the final kilometres of the stage.

The win makes it a hat-trick of different rider victories after sucess from Amanda Spratt and Katrin Garfoot in the last two days. The result also backs up Van Vleuten's win in Durango-Durango on Tuesday. 

“It feels a little bit strange to be the winner," Van Vleuten explained. "I am not at my top level yet but I know it's not far away so it is really good for my confidence."
