The Race: A big crash sent several riders to the hospital during the second lap. Still, the peloton still had plenty of top riders to contend for the title.

Near the top of the final climb of the final lap a powerful group of four got away: Marianne Vos (3 times world road champion, 7 times world cyclocross champion), Emma Johansson, Elisa Longo Borghini and Evelyn Stevens. That should have been the race and probably another rainbow jersey for Vos, but they were not able to work together.

Near the finish the slowing quartet was caught. Vos tried a last desperate surge, but she was caught by the speeding sprinters. Frenchwoman Pauline Ferrand Prevot won the close sprint. The judges had to look at the photo to determine the winner.
