Vuelta a España
Stage 13: Bilbao to Urdax-Dantxarinea - Stage Details

Former Australian criterium champion Sarah Roy took her first victory of the season today in the Boels Rental Ladies Tour by winning the sprint from a breakaway group of 14 riders that stayed away to the finish line.

The strong group formed within the first 40kilometres of the race and rode out to a five-minute advantage with Tayler Wiles and Roy present for ORICA-AIS

Roy, known for her explosive power, waited patiently before opening up her sprint at the perfect moment to claim her first ever victory for the Australian outfit. 

“It was unreal today, it was one of those races that went perfectly for us all day,” Roy said after her win. “I was pretty confident coming into the final, I had Gene Bates on the radio telling me to back myself and for once I got my timing right and didn’t panic.”
