Each day the most aggressive rider will be rewarded with the Combativity Award, with a special version of the same award being presented following the final stage to the rider who the judges decide has most animated the 2018 OVO Energy Women’s Tour across all five stages.  In 2017 the winner of this award was Team Sunweb’s Lucinda Brand.
