Tour of Chongming Island
Stage 2: Chang Xing Fenghuang Park - Stage Details

The second and longest stage of the Tour of Chongming Island took place today with ORICA-SCOTT women boxed in on the final sprint to the line and rueing a missed opportunity to build on the good result of Sarah Roy on stage one.

The tough, windy conditions never materialised and a pedestrian 135kilometre stage saw some late attacks neutralised before the predicted bunch sprint played out with Jolien D’Hoore (Wiggle-High5) claiming the win and Roy in 18th for ORICA-SCOTT.

“In previous years we have seen some difficult racing with echelons forming as the race crosses the bridge between the Islands,” explained sport director Martin Barras. “But this year those conditions didn’t appear, we had little or no wind and that made for rather a benign race. A few teams tried to put others to the sword and attack, but nothing really came of it.”
