For today's women's race, interestingly Wielerflits didn't give a single :* star to van Vleuten ("not her course") or van der Breggen ("not in shape")
Van der Breggen has said from the beginning that she would be a domestique today - and she was.
Van Vleuten did all she could, but it really wasn't her course at all.

The Dutch were more or less in control the whole race ... until the final kilometre when the Italian sprint train took over and no Dutch equivalent was to be found, leaving Vos to jump on Balsamo's wheel on her own. Longo Borghini did a long leadout, then Balsamo just kept Vos behind her for the #rainbow biggest victory of her career so far.
Niewiadoma - who had been very active in the final - took the final podium place.
