Chantal van den Broek-Blaak of the Netherlands has won the Holland Ladies Tour after finishing in the bunch in the fifth and final stage while her compatriot Marianne Vos took her third victory of the race.

With just 57 riders taking to the start line, the final stage of the race took place in a rainy Arnhem over 19 laps of a 7.8-kilometre course.

A short climb that served as a Queen of the Mountains (QOM) segment on five of the laps also proved to be a launchpad for attacks with Parkhotel Valkenburg and Jumbo-Visma active at the front of the peloton.

It was not until 109km to go that an attack managed to stick as Poland's Kasia Niewiadoma broke free of the bunch over the top of the second QOM point.

With five kilometres to go Eugenie Duval of France and Dutch pair Mischa Bredewold and Silke Smulders broke free of the group but the efforts of the Canyon/SRAM team brought the gap right down to the leaders and the peloton looked on track to catch them before the finish.

Amalie Dideriksen then led the pack who caught the break.

Britain's Alice Barnes and Vos were in hot pursuit heading into the final bend and home straight.

Jumbo-Visma all-rounder Vos proved to be the quickest as Barnes and The Netherlands Amy Pieters followed in second and third respectively.

In the overall general classification standings, Van Den Broek-Blaak finished 17 seconds clear of Switzerland's Marlen Reusser as she completed the event in 10 hours 50 minutes 38 seconds.

Another Dutch rider, Ellen van Dijk, rounded out the top three as she clocked in 30 seconds behind the leader.

Vos retained the points jersey while her Jumbo-Visma team mate and countrywoman Anouska Koster took the QOM lead from Canadian Alison Jackson after her solo breakaway.

Pffeifer Georgi of England secured the white jersey for the best young rider and SD Worx came away with the team classification despite starting the race two riders short.
