La Course by Le Tour de France - Race Overview

Only 48hours after sealing the first Grand Tour victory in the history of Mitchelton-SCOTT, Giro Rosa champion Annemiek van Vleuten did it again, taking a spectacular last-minute win at La Course by Le Tour de France.

The world time trial champion was part of a strong favourites group on the final climb up the Col de la Colombiere alongside teammate and Giro Rosa green jersey winner Amanda Spratt and Mitchelton-SCOTT duo tried a tactical one-two which succeeded in reducing the group further.

Anna van der Breggen (Boels-Dolmans) went next and pushed on to lead into the descent with Van Vleuten chasing. The final kilometre was dramatic as Van Vleuten dug in, shaking off the tiredness from the Giro Rosa with every pedal stroke, gaining on Van der Breggen and passing her metres before the line to take an incredible win.
