The Women's WorldTour stopped in Sweden for two rounds with the Postnord Vårgårda West Sweden Team Time Trial on August 11 and the Road Race on August 13.
The Boels Dolmans team won the Postnord Vårgårda West Sweden team time trial, fighting through pouring rain and strong winds to set a time of 53:07 for the 43km rolling course.
The Dutch squad won the prestigious WorldTour race for a third consecutive time, beating world champions Team Sunweb by 16 seconds, with Cervelo Bigla third at 48 seconds.
The Boels-Dolmans team included Anna van der Breggen, Chantal Blaak, Amy Pieters, Amalie Dideriksen, Karol-Anne Canuel and Christine Majerus.
The women will also compete in the Postnord Vårgårda West Sweden Road Race event on Monday. The road race route is the same as last year's but includes several final short circuits in Vargarda. The riders first race four short laps followed by a longer loop of about 55km that contains four shorter gravel road portions, before ending with four laps of the 11km circuit, for a total of 141km.
