Doebel-Hickok climbs to stage 2 victory at Tour des Pyrénées

Krista Doebel-Hickok (EF Education-TIBCO-SVB) won back-to-back stages at the CIC Tour Féminin International des Pyrénées with a show of power on the mountaintop finish of the Col du Soulor.

She held off a late charge by Ricarda Bauernfeind (Canyon-SRAM), who finished second. Eri Yonamine (Human Powered Health) took third place on the stiff ascent of double-digit gradients near the top. The other two riders to stay together on the final climb took the next two spots, Greta Marturano (Top Girls Fassa Bortolo) and Yuliia Biriukova (Arkéa Pro Cycling), fourth and fifth, respectively.
