Veronica Ewers (EF Education-TIBCO-SVB) secured a solo victory on stage 2 at Festival Elsy Jacobs. Ewers made a late-race attack inside the final seven kilometers of the race and held off a reduced chase group sprint won by Marta Bastianelli (UAE Team Emirates) and Karlijn Swinkels (Jumbo-Visma) in Garnich.

“I’m in shock right now too be honest right now it’s my first win in the WorldTour and I really didn’t expect this to be the outcome today to be completely honest,” Ewers said.
