Alice Barnes (Team GB) sprinted through the rain on the Parade in Kilkenny to take her second stage victory of the week as An Post Rás na mBan came to a conclusion yesterday.

The Northamptonshire rider conquered the 90km course to secure victory in the NDC Points Classification.

Second on the day was New Zealand's Amanda Jamieson (Maastlandster Veris CCN) and Sweden's Frida Knutsson (Team Crescent DARE).

Barnes' Team GB team-mate Elinor Barker was safely in the large group to take Britain's first overall success in the race since Emma Trott's win in 2009.

Barker coasted in at the back of an eight-second split in the peloton, but with almost two minutes advantage going into the final stage, the Welsh Olympic champion's final margin of victory was a comfortable 1m 47s.

Second overall was Alexandra Nessmar (Team Crescent DARE), founded on a battling ride to second on Mount Leinster.

Third was Natalie Grinczer (Team WNT), a second behind Nessmar at the conclusion of six stages and over 400km of racing.

Earlier Barker had led the field over the final IVCA Wicklow 200 Queen of the Hills climb to confirm her victory in the climber's classification.
