Postnord Vårgårda West Sweden - Road Race 2018

Marianne Vos (WaowDeals) used her power, guile and timing to perfection, jumping around the Team Sunweb lead-out in the final corner to take the victory in the PostNord Vårgårda WestSweden Road Race.

Vos' well-timed effort meant that she had time to celebrate on the line as Wiggle High5's Kirsten Wild beat defending champion Lotta Lepistö (Cervélo-Bigla) in the sprint for second.

The road race route is the same as last year's, however, extended by final short circuits in Vargarda. The riders first raced four short laps of 11km, followed by a longer lap of about 55km, containing four shorter gravel road portions, before ending with four laps of the 11km circuit, for a total of 141km.
