Winder Wins First Ever Women's Pro Series Race At Tour Down Under

US champion Ruth Winder (Trek-Segafredo) fought off attacks in a battle for time bonuses on the final criterium stage of the Women's Tour Down Under to secure overall victory in Adelaide on Sunday.

Winder safely sailed across the finish line with the bunch to secure the leader's ochre jersey after Simona Frapporti (BePink) won the stage from a 10-rider breakaway.

The Italian charged to the line on the final stage of the four-day tour ahead of Lauren Stephens (TIBCO-Silicon Valley Bank) and Rushlee Buchanan (Vantage New Zealand). 
It was good news for Winder that a winning break got away as they soaked up the bonus seconds that had the power to threaten her lead in the first UCI ranked race of 2020 and first ProSeries race ever.
