Britain's April Tacey claimed her second stage victory of the virtual Tour de France on Sunday, while Freddy Ovett edged a sprint finish in the men's race.

Dropps rider Tacey, 19, timed her sprint to perfection to get past Anna Henderson (Sunweb) and Lauren Stephens (Tibco-Silicon Valley Bank) on the line.

The stage, the fourth of six, was raced over two 23km laps of a computer-generated course on the Zwift training platform and featured two climbs per lap.

The virtual race is being hosted on Zwift after the COVID-19 pandemic forced the postponement of the annual road race held in July until the end of August.

Ovett's win was a first for Israel Start-Up Nation in the Tour, albeit the virtual version. His powerful finish held off NTT's Michael Valgren and Mitchelton-Scott's Nick Schultz.
