La Route de France
Stage 1: Saint Quentin to Pontoise - Stage Details

Yesterday’s second place finisher Sarah Roy just missed out on another podium spot today, finishing in fifth place on the first road stage of Route de France. 

ORICA-AIS worked well together keeping general classification contender Tayler Wiles out of trouble, before setting up Roy in the reduced sprint finish which eventually concluded the 136kilometre stage.
