Stage 3 was easily the most aggressive, with the strong winds and open roads playing their part in a very fast day of racing.

It eventually came back together for the seafront finish in Claction, with Dutch World Champion Marianne Vos taking the win & with it the lead in GC from a reduced bunch sprint.
Helen & Jessie continued their fine form finishing 38th & 43rd in the bunch.
After being held up by a crash Harriet, Jo, Penny & Mel crossed the line in a small group unable to bridge back in the frenetic pace set by Rabo Liv & Boels Dolmans – as the race covered 83kms in 2 hours.
Following a crash free day the team will be looking for more opportunities tomorrow.
