Hannah Barnes Wins Women's Tour Stage 5

Northants' Hannah Barnes is still celebrating after winning Stage 5 of the Aviva Women's Tour in Hemel Hempstead yesterday.

Second and third place riders were just fractions of seconds behind Hannah when she crossed the finishing line in Hemel around 130.

Meanwhile Hannah's mum has told Heart she plans to put her daughter's trophy on show in her shop in Oundle - where Stage 3 started on Friday.

Germany's Lisa Brennauer won the Tour overall.

She said: "This Tour is one of the biggest events on the women's calendar, so this victory means a lot to me. It was a great victory for me, but also for the whole team - big thanks to all my team mates."

"I have to thank my team-mates, it wasn't easy today - a tough stage with all the hills and a lot of hard attacks.''

The Velocio-SRAM rider held her nerve on an attacking final day from Marlow to Hemel Hempstead.

The stage was won by Britain's Hannah Barnes - Laura Trott was 25th - but it was Brennauer who took the top prize.

Jolien D'Hoore was second, with Christine Majerus third. Trott ended 17th overall with Barnes the highest-ranked Briton in fifth.
