Tiffany Cromwell and Linda Villumsen were part of a 12-rider breakaway that formed on the third of 12 circuit laps. Attacks fragmented the group inside the final three laps. Cromwell would go on to post the best finish for ORICA-AIS in seventh place.
"Tiff’s aggressive move put her out of contention for the sprint for third, but it was a good attempt," said McPartland. "She would have finished on the podium if she had pulled it off, and she knew it was a risk she needed to take if she wanted to finish third. Tiff ended up in seventh, last of the riders in her group, and while it wasn’t exactly the result we had wanted, it was a super effort."
