- Marlen Reusser wins stage eight with Vollering second
- Last year’s runner-up claims maiden title after ‘amazing season’
In the end, Team SD Worx had it all their own way as the European time trial champion, Marlen Reusser, completed a memorable weekend for the Dutch team, adding time trial victory in Pau to Demi Vollering’s emphatic overall victory in the Tour de France Femmes.
The weekend double for SD Worx capped a race in which they been the dominant force throughout even though at times they had been under attack, both from their rivals and from race officials. None of that, however, could prevent Vollering asserting herself in the climbs of the Pyrenees on Saturday afternoon, her star now rising as fast as that of her rival and compatriot Annemiek van Vleuten begins to fade.
