Reigning World Champion Lizzie Armitstead is back on top of the world rankings with her win at the 13th edition of the Women’s Ronde Van Vlaanderen. After a 140-kilometer ride that included three cobbled sections, the race came down to a sprint finish between Emma Johansson and Armitstead. The World Champion edged out Johansson at the line to take back the Women’s WorldTour points leader’s jersey from her Boels-Dolmans teammate, Chantal Blaak. Blaak finished the race in third position.
