    Marta Lach (Ceratizit-WNT) secured second place on the second stage of the Tour de Bretagne women’s cycling race, further strengthening her position at the top of the overall classification.

    The Wednesday stage in Saint-Meen-le-Grand saw French rider Valentine Fortin of Cofidis cross the finish line first. Lach’s teammate, Martina Alzini from Italy, claimed the third spot in the close finale of the 125-kilometer stage that started in Plemet. All three riders achieved a time of 3:03:54, just like the two following cyclists in the leading group.

    Katarzyna Wilkos secured the tenth position, with a 13-second gap, while Dominika Włodarczyk (both from MAT Atom Developer) took the twelfth spot, trailing by 13 seconds. Olga Wankiewicz, another cyclist from the Wrocław-based team, finished 20th with a 22-second difference. In the general classification, the 25-year-old Lach, who won the first stage and claimed the tenth position in last year’s race, holds a 37-second lead over Italian Alessia Vigilio (Top Girls Fassa Bortolo), and a 41-second advantage over Włodarczyk. Wilkos sits at 14th place with a 1:30 deficit, while Wankiewicz is placed 20th, trailing by 1:39. The five-stage Tour de Bretagne in Brittany will conclude on Saturday in Saint-Jean-Brevelay.
