Australian Grace Brown has put in a brave performance at the UCI WorldTour race Ronde van Drenthe today, attacking solo for almost 50km in trying conditions in Holland.
The 26-year-old, in her first season with Mitchelton-SCOTT, was eventually caught inside the final 15km after a wrong turn, whilst an extra stroke of bad luck saw Gracie Elvin puncture shortly after to rule her out of contention as Marta Bastianelli (Team Vitru Cycling) took the victory.
