Lea Lin Teutenberg (Germany), Juliette Labous (France), and Sheyla Gutiérrez (Spain) were able to create a 20-second lead which lasted till the final 6 kilometers. It was time for a sprint.

It was a close call between Wiebes and Elisa Balsamo. Balsamo had to satisfy herself with the silver. Rachele Barbieri took the bronze.
