Emma Johansson (Red Sun Cycling Team) has won the third round of the UCI Women's World Cup held in the Netherlands, the Unive World Cup - Ronde van Drenthe. The 25-year-old Swedish rider sprinted to victory from a group of six, dashing the hopes of the two Dutch members of the break, Loes Gunnewijk (Team Flexpoint) and Chantal Blaak (Leontien.nl), who rounded out the podium in second and third place respectively. Ina Teutenberg (Columbia-Highroad) led in the field seven seconds later in seventh place.

Johansson's victory earned her enough points to take over the lead in the World Cup, a position previously held by Marianne Vos of the Netherlands who finished the day in eighth place.
