Despite crashes and a "hectic" atmosphere, Anna van der Breggen made it two straight Dutch victories in La Course by Le Tour de France women's race on the Champs-Elysees, held on the same day as the Tour de France finishes.

The 25-year-old rider, who also won the Giro Rosa stage race in Italy this month, broke away on the rain-splattered Paris boulevard to beat Jolien D'hoore of Belgium, who was second, and Dutchwoman Amy Pieters in third -- each 1 second behind.

"It was a really slippery road, it was hectic all day," said Van Der Breggen on French TV. "This race is really, really big for us."

Marion Vos won the race's debut edition last year.
