Tour de Feminin
Stage 3: Krásná Lípa - Stage Details

The penultimate day of the Tour de Feminin was split into two stages, with Tayler Wiles producing a strong performance in the morning's individual time trial to finish in second place, followed by yesterday's stage winner Loren Rowney sprinting into second place in the road stage.

Wiles stopped the clock just six seconds behind the time trial stage winner, Natalia Boyarskay (Russian National Team), which catapulted her up into second place overall with just one stage remaining.

Despite being close to the victory on both stages today and having to settle for second place, sport director Gene Bates was very happy with the team's performances and is pleased with where ORICA-AIS sit heading into a hilly final stage tomorrow. 

"Tayler had a great ride this morning," said Bates. "It was a really strong time trial for her and it was a very difficult one with two decent climbs and also fast descents in there."
