The amazing season for women's World Road Champion Marianne Vos (Team DSB Bank) continued yesterday when she won the first stage of her home tour, the Holland Ladies Tour.
With still a few kilometers to race, a lead group of three was doing its best to hold off the fast chasing peloton, lead by the DSB Bank team of Vos. By the time it entered the final few hundred metres the group had been reeled in and the sprinters were taking position ready to pounce on the finish. Vos was led out perfectly by her team and secured the win in front of Judith Arndt (T-Mobile) and Marta Bastianelli (Italian National Team).
The win was Vos' 25th win of the season on the road.
