Kirsten Wild of Wiggle High5 has won the final stage of the Tour of Chongming Island. Hitec's Charlotte Becker secured the overall victory.

The final of three stages was 126.5 kilometers long with an entirely flat course starting and finishing in Xincheng Park.

The peloton had clearly learned its lesson from Friday's successful breakaway, and made sure to prevent any early escape from happening this time around. Sarah Roy attacked late on and was joined by five others, but this group was reeled back in shortly after.

The mass sprint that was expected to happen in the previous two stages, finally did happen on the last day of cycling with Wild taking the victory ahead of Mitchelton-Scott's Jolien D'hoore. Cylance's Giorgia Bronzini, winner of the opening stage, finished third.

Becker, who won the second stage at the end of a long breakaway, finished in the peloton to confirm the overall victory of the UCI Women's WorldTour race.
