Australian Chloe Hosking has earned a third trip to the podium this week with a third-place finish in the final stage of the Women's Tour in Felixstowe.
The 31-year-old Commonwealth road race champion, who's making a successful comeback after missing five months with health issues, ended up finishing second in the points competition at the week-long tour around Britain.
Dutchwoman Demi Vollering secured the overall title on Saturday as Elisa Balsamo claimed a final day bunch sprint victory, her first in the world champion's rainbow jersey following her triumph in Flanders.
SD Worx rider Vollering was defending a lead of one minute and nine seconds in the general classification and her advantage in the leader's blue jersey always looked safe on the last leg over the 155.3km route from Haverhill through to the Suffolk coast.
The Dutch allrounder steered clear of any trouble to finish safely in the peloton while Valcar-Travel & Service rider Balsamo had the legs to take power home in the sprint finish ahead of Lorena Wiebes and Hosking.
Hosking couldn't quite add to the two wins in Europe she's enjoyed since returning to action for Trek-Segafredo after also finishing second in Monday's opening stage and third on stage three.
It earned her a second place finish in the points classification, just five points adrift of Dutch rider Wiebes.
