Cervelo-Bigla team finished 28 seconds slower.

"None of us really expected this - we were going for the podium,” said Ellen van Dijk of Sunweb.

"We had a really smooth race. When we finished we just thought it was a great ride and were just happy anyway. So when we saw we were so close to Boels, we couldn’t believe it. And then we beat them - it’s still a little surreal."
