Race report
Iris Monticolo and Matilde Vitillo are the first attackers after roughly 15 kilometres of racing. Giorgia Bariani, Hannah Barnes and Anastasia Carbonari track them down before the five open a gap of more than 5 minutes.

Bariani goes solo in the last 18 kilometres. The peloton is trailing at 1 minute at that moment, which comes slowly down. The solo of the 21 year old Italian is history with 4 kilometres to go.

Elisa Balsamo powers to a commanding victory in the ensuing bunch sprint. As in the first two sprints, Charlotte Kool and Marianne Vos round out the top 3.

Annemiek van Vleuten stays in the overall race lead.
