Ben Tulett (Ineos Grenadiers) won the uphill prologue to Mount Fløyen and took the first leader’s jersey of the Tour of Norway. His time of 14:28 was one second better than Ineos teammate Magnus Sheffield, who took second.

The Ineos duo completed rides among the first half of the 113-rider field, and only Hungarian road race national champion Attila Valter (Jumbo-Visma) made a significant move on the stiff uphill climb during the second half of the contest. He took third place, 20 seconds back from Tulett.
