Boels Dolmans continues women’s WorldTour dominance

by CyclingTips

The Boels Dolmans Cycling Team continues to dominate the UCI Women’s WorldTour, taking two stages and the overall at the Aviva Women’s Tour in Britain. World champ Lizzie Armitstead won the queen stage of the race on her way to the overall, while teammate Christine Majerus started things off with a win on the opening stage.


Despite skipping the race, Megan Guarnier (Boels Dolmans) remains atop the UCI Women’s WorldTour individual classification ahead of Armitstead and Emma Johansson.

Several other teams achieved top results in the United Kingdom. Lotta Lepistö (Cervélo-Bigla Pro Cycling) won from a breakaway on the final stage for the team’s first victory in the Women’s WorldTour while Amy Pieters (Wiggle High5) delivered her team its second Women’s WorldTour win on stage two.

Kasia Niewiadoma (Rabo Liv) retains the blue youth jersey.

Next up is the Giro d’Italia Internazionale Femminile, from July 1-7.
