There’s nothing more special than getting to win together,” said Stevens, who has been part of the team’s winning sextet each year. “It gives me goose bumps. I said at breakfast this morning that it feels like Christmas – it’s such a special event and it’s the highlight of the year.”

Rabo Liv was on pace for what would have been a second-place finish until three of their riders crashed. Anna Van der Breggen was taken away by ambulance.
