The final stage of the Ovo Energy Women's Tour saw Lizzie Deignan seal the overall victory, her first win since becoming a mother less than nine months ago. She also became the first rider to win two editions of a race that was first held in 2014, having also won in 2016.

In The Cycling Podcast Féminin, Orla Chennaoui, Rose Manley and Richard Moore discuss the final stage and look back over the six days of racing.

We hear from Deignan and the runner-up, Kasia Niewiadoma, as well as the race director Mick Bennett and one of the revelations, Lizzy Banks, who finished seventh overall. Bennett tells us that it had been the toughest edition of the Women's Tour and that they will consult with the teams and riders to make more changes to next year's race.
