Johansson wins women's Cholet-Pays de Loire

Emma Johansson won Cholet Pays de Loire on Sunday to secure back-to-back victories in the French one day race riding for the Swedish National Team. The win is Johansson's third in Cholet, making her the first women to attain the hat trick.

"It's never easy to come back as a favourite," said Johansson. "Everyone is looking to you, so it's harder to win. It's really nice to come back and repeat. I'm pleased with the way the race unfolded. It played the way we wanted. It was a good day for the team."
