Australian rider Chloe Hosking won the 2016 La Course in a sprint finish ahead of Finland’s Lotta Lepisto and Dutch legend Marianne Vos.
Due to two crashes on the final lap, teams were unable to get a good leadout together and it was every woman for herself as the peloton charged down the cobbled Champs Élysées into a messy sprint where Hoskins went early and held off the field.
