Cycling: Stage win for Cathalijne Hoolwerf as Leah Dixon takes V-SERIES title

Britain's Leah Dixon took the overall win in the SKODA V-SERIES Women's Tour on Friday, with a comfortable 22-second advantage over Tibco-Silicon Valley Bank team mate Kristen Faulkner. Dani Christmas of Lotto Soudal, who won the opening stage, finished third overall. Dixon closed out the win after finishing fifth in the third and final stage of the virtual event, a 36.2 kilometre route around the streets of Canary Wharf in central London. Anyone of a number of riders could have taken the stage win, but it was Cathalijne Hoolwerf of the Netherlands (NXTG Racing) who timed her run to perfection - she hit the front with 200 metres to go and never looked back. American riders took second, third and fourth in Lauren Stephens (Tibco–Silicon Valley Bank), Kristen Faulkner (also Tibco–Silicon Valley Bank) and Leigh Ann Ganzar (Rally Cycling).
