Lizzie Deignan secured her first victory since returning from maternity leave as she won stage five to take the overall lead in the Women’s Tour.
The 30-year-old out-sprinted Thursday’s stage winner Kasia Niewiadoma and Elisa Longo Borghini at the Royal Welsh Showground after the trio broke clear.
Briton Deignan, winner in 2016, leads 2017 champion Niewiadoma by one second going into Saturday’s final stage.
The win came 657 days since Deignan’s previous professional victory.
