Procycling - - Women's 2017 World Tour -

"The pro ile of the race is su­per hard, but as it's raced in Au­gust, most rid­ers are used to the climbs and to those kind of e forts, so usu­ally an all-round cy­clist will win. You have to be­lieve in your­self right up to the line. On the last steep climb, only the best climbers can stay at the front, but al­most al­ways a sec­ond group comes back in the last 2km – that’s how I was able to sprint for sec­ond place."
