translated from Ladies Tour of Holland
Kelly Druyts claimed stage 4 of this year’s Ladies Tour of Holland yesterday, after winning a sprint finish ahead of Malgorzta Jasinska and Romy Kasper.
"It is very nice that I get the win here," said Druyts after the finish. "I was constantly at the front to sit quotes to participate in an escape. Eventually they let us drive off, because all the big teams were represented. In the last ten miles I’ve decided to do nothing more and save for the sprint me. With this victory is my Ladies Tour certainly been successful. "
Alison Tetrick, attempted to ride clear in the waning moments of the yesterday’s race. However, the American rider was ultimately reeled in by a chase group of 11 riders during the final kilometer.
Meanwhile, fellow American, Evelyn Stevens, finished well enough in the main group, to garner enough time to wrest the leader’s jersey from Ellen van Dijk.
