SummaryEdit

With defending champion Marianne Vos unable to keep up with the pace and her compatriot Daphny van den Brand crashing in the early stage of the race top favourite Hanka Kupfernagel started great and took the lead. Halfway through the race she suffered a mechanical problem and was dropped back. As a result two French outsiders Maryline Salvetat and Laurence Leboucher were in the lead alongside surprising American Katie Compton. In the final round Leboucher dropped the pace and Compton had to close the gap towards Salvetat, but eventually failed, resulting in the rainbow jersey for Salvetat. Compton clinched the silver and Leboucher won a bronze medal.[1]
