The second stage road race resulted in a bunch sprint with Lizzie Williamsthe team’s top finisher in 23rd position.
A series of turns, some reasonably sharp, contributed to small splits in the final as the head of the peloton approached the sprint with speed. Brand, in the end, a comfortable winner.
“I got some good efforts from Loes and Gracie (Elvin) in setting us up for the bunch sprint, but there is no doubt that at the end of the day we came a bit short,” Barras said.
