Marianne Vos won Gent-Wevelgem for the women for the first time in her career on Sunday.

The Dutch won the sprint from a thinned peloton and gave Jumbo-Visma the first victory in women's cycling.

The 33-year-old Vos started the sprint from afar and was ahead of the Belgian champion Lotte Kopecky and the German Lisa Brennauer.

The thinned peloton only managed to capture the Italian duo Soraya Paladin and Elisa Longo Borghini in the last kilometer.

For Vos it is her first victory of the season.

The three-time world champion on the road made the switch from Liv Racing (last year CCC-Liv) to Jumbo-Visma, which has a women's team in cycling for the first time this season.

Kopecky and Brennauer also finished second and third in last year's edition.

Then the victory in Gent-Wevelgem went to the Belgian Jolien D'hoore.

For Jumbo-Visma, Vos's victory means a double blow.

The Dutch team also booked the victory with the men in Gent-Wevelgem earlier in the day with Wout van Aert.
