Demi Vollering impressively doubled in the Women's Tour on Wednesday.

The Dutch rider of SD Worx was by far the fastest in the individual time trial and also took the lead in the general classification.

The 24-year-old Vollering recorded a time of 23 minutes and 18 seconds in the time trial of 16.6 kilometers with start and finish in Atherstone, England.

She was therefore more than a minute faster than her competitors.

British Joscelin Lowden was second at 1.04 minutes from Vollering and number three Leah Kirchmann from Canada conceded 1.05 minutes.

Chantal van den Broek-Blaak was sixth (+1.09 minutes).

Due to the day's success, Vollering also took over the leader's jersey from Clara Copponi.

Prior to the time trial, she was only nine seconds behind the French and Amy Pieters.

The two women admitted 1.28 minutes and 1.31 minutes respectively to Vollering in the time trial.

It is Vollering's third win of the season.

Earlier this year she already won a few big races with Liège-Bastogne-Liège and La Course.

The Women's Tour has a total of six stages and lasts until Saturday.

Marianne Vos won the first edition of the British race in 2014.
