The Women’s Tour’s first-ever stage in the picturesque county of Gloucestershire takes place on Wednesday (8 June) between Tewkesbury and Gloucester.

Clocking in at 107.9 kilometres, the stage three route packs in 1,494m of climbing, making it the most undulating day of this year’s race thus far.

Despite passing through the Forest of Dean, a sprint finish could again be on the cards, especially if Lorena Wiebes’ Team DSM squad manage to control the peloton throughout.

Last year Wiebes became only the second rider in Women’s Tour history to claim back-to-back stage victories: having won in Harlow on Tuesday, could she become the first person to achieve that feat twice?
