Stage Four of the 2018 OVO Energy Women’s Tour is dedicated to the memory of Sharon Laws, a British Olympian, national champion and winner of our Queen of the Mountains Jersey in the inaugural 2014 edition.

Everyone at SweetSpot Group was saddened to hear of the death of Sharon in December 2017 following her fight with cancer.

At the launch of the 2018 OVO Energy Women’s Tour at the Houses of Parliament in London, Race Director Mick Bennett announced that Stage Four of the race would be dedicated to her memory.

“It will be a tremendously picturesque route taking us Broadway and Snowshill on the northern edge of the Cotswolds.  These were roads that would have been familiar with our former Queen of the Mountains Sharon Laws, who lived and trained locally to the area,” he said.

“Like everyone we were deeply saddened by the loss of Sharon in December last year.  She lit up the first two editions of the race and returned in 2017 to add her expert analysis to the ITV4 commentary, leaving a lasting impression on the event, and we would like to dedicate this stage to her.”

Sharon will forever remain one of our greatest champions and will be greatly missed by us all.
