Women’s Tour 2021: Stage 6 – Haverhill to Felixstowe

Season 9, Episode 186,  Oct 09, 07:42 PM

That’s a wrap from the 2021 Women’s Tour. Join Rose Manley, Lionel Birnie and Lizzy Banks as they witness the conclusion of the final stage – the longest of the race – to Felixstowe.

The sun was shining, the crowds were cheering and although there wasn’t a drop of rain in the air in the finishing straight the rainbow shone too.

Elisa Balsamo, the recently-crowned world champion, finally grabbed a stage win for her Valcar team after going so close yesterday. We hear the reaction from Balsamo and her teammates.

Lizzy’s recon included a trip on a ferry, we wrap up the stories from the day’s breakaway and the crash which marred the run-in before focussing on overall winner Demi Vollering. We hear from her SD Worx sports director Danny Stam.

We also reveal who has won the Pédaleuse de Charme and Stacy Snyder’s beautiful hand-made cup and hear from Trixi  Worrack, who brought down the curtain on a long career today.

We hope you have enjoyed this week’s coverage. Thanks to our producers Will Jones, Adam Bowie and Huw Owen. Also to Simon Gill, to Lionel’s mystery researcher and to Alasdair Lloyd-Jones and the social media team.
