Sunweb’s Ellen van Dijk was third in the sprint behind Barnes, the Brit riding for local team Drops. Thanks to the time bonus from her stage result, van Dijk moved into second place overall.

“It feels really great” said Hosking, who rides for Ale Cipollini. “This is a highlight race for most riders on the calendar so I feel really privileged to come away with my first win and first podium here. It’s a phenomenal event, I feel like I’ve entered an elite group!”

Hosking, 26, won La Course on the Champs-Élysées in 2016.

“This year has been a breakthrough season, I’ve trained really hard and I’m happy it’s paying off,” said Barnes. “The OVO Energy Women’s Tour is a home race for me, it’s a Women’s WorldTour event, it’s one of the biggest on the calendar — it’s so well organized, everybody comes here wanting to win it. So you have to go into it with good focus and train hard for it.”

The race has one more hilly day of racing ahead on Saturday, a 133km race from Chesterfield to Derbyshire. Sunday’s stage in London should be ideal for another bunch sprint.

“All teams were expecting a bunch sprint and they wanted to take their chance,” Niewiadoma added. “At one point a breakaway of five riders was clear, but I was pretty calm as I knew that they were not competitors for me on GC. My team controlled the whole race.”

Unfortunately for Niewiadoma and her WM3 team, Marianne Vos, who was second in stage 1, abandoned after stage 3. She crashed in the run to the finish and was later found to have a broken collarbone.
