An OVO Energy Women’s Tour first: Stage Three of the 2018 race will retrace virtually the entire route used in the respective stage 12 months earlier, a 151-kilometre leg from Atherstone to Royal Leamington Spa.

Once again, the Warwickshire stage of the race will be longest of the entire tour, although the distance did little to deter attacks in 2017. Only half the field made it to Royal Leamington Spa in the same time as winner Chloe Hosking did last year, making this a crucial stage in the fight for the OVO Energy Green Jersey.
