Aussie Brown will take lead in Women’s Tour

Australian Grace Brown has claimed her first Women’s Tour phase victory and taken the general lead in the British race with two times to go after a dash end in Welshpool.

Brown, of the FDJ Nouvelle-Aquitaine Futuroscope workforce, was element of a three-rider surge at the stop of the 144.7km fourth stage from Wrexham on Thursday.

She held off the obstacle of Italian Elisa Longo Borghini, who inspite of producing a crack for the line sooner or later finished 3rd behind Poland’s Kasia Niewiadoma.

The 29-12 months-previous Camperdown rider now leads Niewiadoma by 4 seconds and Longo Borghini by 6 heading into Friday’s queen phase in Carmarthenshire.

Staff DSM’s Dutch rider Lorena Wiebes, the past wearer of the yellow jersey and pre-race favourite, dropped back again to eighth, 66 seconds at the rear of the chief.
