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.
