This week Sarah and Dan recap the Ovo Energy Women’s Tour held in the United Kingdom, reviewing each of the stages and exploring some of the more surprising results. Along the way they accidentally reveal which one of them is the REAL comic book geek (you won’t be surprised when you hear who it is!) and of course, take some time to wrap up the other things that they’ve seen around the way over the past week.

Here’s the link to the Ella CyclingTips article about power output in the women’s peloton that Dan found both interesting and annoying, and that Sarah found mostly annoying.
And just in case you needed it, here’s the link to CQ Ranking’s current rankings for the women.
Stage 3 was the longest we’ve ever seen in a women’s stage race, at 151km long, and it always looked like it would be a battle between escapees and bunch sprint teams, especially with the finish, a long, swooping drag absolutely perfect for power sprinters. But with this year’s race being so unpredictable, what would happen?
I’ve got the highlights videos for you, then the rider for the Look Mum No Hands! Stage 4 #RiderResults competition, and then Stage 3 results, photos, reports and rider tweets for you. As always, I’ll add in more as I see it.
First, the 40 minute highlights from ITV4, available for the next 30 days (you may need a VPN to see these).
