Ladies Tour of Norway: Guarnier wins stage 1

American champion takes the early race lead

US road champion Megan Guarnier (Boels Dolmans) won the first stage of the Ladies Tour of Norway on Saturday in Halden. She was in a breakaway with Amanda Spratt (Orica-AIS) and out-sprinted the Australian to the finish line to take both the stage win and the leader's jersey. Spratt's teammate Valentina Scandolara sprinted in for third place ahead of an 18-rider chase group. 

"I'm really happy with this win," Guarnier said. "I like an agressive race and that is what we did today. 50km before the finish line I attacked and saw Spratt join me. It's great to finish this agressive racing with a victory in Norway. And to win for Boels-Dolmans again."

Guarnier is now leading the overall classification heading into the second and final stage on Sunday. She has a six-second lead over Spratt and 14 over Scandolara. Stage 2 will bring the peloton on a 115km race from Svinesund to Halden.
