The OVO Women’s Tour came along the road at the bottom of the garden on Saturday! Some of the best riders, including world champions and Olympians from all over the world … very exciting!
The race ran from local market town Chesterfield around 123km and back to Chesterfield. Race conditions were tough with roads damp and winds gusting. The stage was won by an Australian Sarah Roy.
These picture were taken at the Queen of the Mountain sprint just down the road by Middleton.
