Crashes due to wet roads impacted a potential bunch sprint into Moncófar on stage 2 of la Vuelta Femenina, but EF Education-Cannondale kept their cool with Alison Jackson sprinting to take the stage ahead of Blanka Vas (SD Worx-Protime) and Karlijn Swinkels (UAE Team ADQ).

With the bonus seconds both at the finish and intermediate sprints, Vas moved into the race lead, eight seconds ahead of Jackson, with Lidl-Trek’s Elisa Longo Borghini third overall, nine seconds back.
