The bikes were being stored in a truck and thieves broke a roof to get into the equipment room and steal them.

This led to the riders having to use spare bikes for the race. Italian rider Elisa Longo Borghini finished in fifth, 2:11 back of winner Annemiek van Vleuten.

Ellen van Dijk borrowed a bike from men’s rider Koen de Kort and joked afterwards how dirty it was.

“Sorry Koen, it’s a little bit dirty!

“I’ll make sure that it’ll be cleaned, hopefully someone can do that for me. The bike was really, really good.

“This morning was a bit stressful with stolen bikes, that was a bit s*** but yeah Koen’s bike was not a problem!”
