Behind the scenes in Norway and Denmark on the Women's WorldTour

The stage racing doesn’t slow down for Human Powered Health Cycling after the Tour de France Femmes avec Zwift. The team was on the start line in Norway in the first Women’s WorldTour race since ‘La Grande Boucle’, and were coming off a successful showing at the Konvert Kortrijk Classic in Belgian where sprinter Daria Pikulik tasted victory

A result that reenergized the squad going into a crucial stage of the season, the goal was once again to search out for opportunities to place riders high up across the five days in both Norway and Denmark. Punchy finishes, a competitive GC fight, a race-making TT and a final day deluge were all to come. 

Alice Barnes, Nina Buijsman, Audrey Cordon-Ragot, Barbara Malcotti, Daria Pikulik and Lily Williams clipped in to do battle in the North. 

Human Powered Health Cycling is back in action next weekend at the Classic Lorient Agglomération - Trophée CERATIZIT – part of the WorldTour and formerly known as GP de Plouay – before they return to stage racing at the Tour Cycliste Féminin International de l'Ardèche starting September 5.
