MARIANNE Vos added the Women's Tour de Yorkshire to her long list of accolades as victory on stage two gave her the overall win in Scarborough.

The three-time former world champion out-sprinted Mavi Garcia and Soraya Paladin after the trio reached the end of a brutal 132km stage from Bridlington alone.

Garcia had crested the last of the day's categorised climbs alone but was soon joined by Vos and Paladin and they worked together to stay clear.

The riders set off from Bridlington in horrible conditions, as a cold headwind blew rain and hail into their faces on the road north.

The race was neutralised, with the first categorised climb in Silpho bypassed due to concerns over a slippery substance on the road, before the action began in earnest.

World champion Anna Van Der Breggen attacked on the approach to Robin Hood's Bay to blow the race apart as a series of counter moves began.

After the Boels-Dolmans rider was caught, Movistar's Garcia went next, to be joined by Vos and Paladin.

Vos said: “I was nervous coming into the final because I didn’t know what power I had left in my legs after such a hard stage but to finish it off was incredible. I’m really happy to win here and the crowds in the last few days have been fantastic. Like us, the spectators have braved some bad weather over the last two days but they have always cheered us on. It’s been a very good race.”

Yorkshire’s very own Lizzie Deignan said: “Marianne is a phenomenal rider and thoroughly deserves this win because she rode it very smartly, so congratulations to her.

"This has been another fantastic race and the whole women’s peloton is incredibly grateful for the support we have received from the organisers. This is a top-class race and I’m looking forward to returning in September for the World Championships.”
