Trek-Segafredo's Lotta Lepistö has won the last stage of the Setmana Ciclista Valenciana. WNT-Rotor's Clara Koppenburg confirmed the overall victory of the race.

The last stage of the Spanish race was 104 kilometres long between Valencia and Sagunto over a route that included one climb of the second category. There were some attempts of breakaways on the day, but the work of the peloton made it impossible for any groups to go far enough.

In the second half of the stage the peloton broke in two, but soon it got compacted again to face a final sprint. Trek-Segafredo's Lotta Lepistö was the fastest at the sprint, taking her second individual victory and the third for the team in the 2019 edition of the race.

Canyon-SRAM's Elena Cecchini, Sunweb's Coryn Rivera, Movistar's Sheyla Gutierrez and WNT Rotor's Claudia Koster completed the top five of the day. Clara Koppenburg arrived to the finish with the peloton and confirmed her overall victory of the race, the first one of her career.
