When the Tour of Scandinavia started yesterday in Denmark, the reigning world champion Marianne Vos won.

Today, the 35-year-old Dutch woman – who won the line race in Vårgårda on Sunday – repeated the feat, when she crossed the 154-kilometer stretch Orust-Strömstad first of all.

But it was not far from being a home victory.

Swedish Emilia Fahlin, who finished ninth yesterday, was the first to pull away in the sprint.

But just a few meters before the finish line, Vos overtook, thereby strengthening his overall lead in the Tour of Scandinavia.

- Emilia came quickly at high speed, and I tried to answer.

Very nice to take a second straight victory, says Vos in Europsport's broadcast.

Tomorrow the tour continues with a 119 km stretch between Norwegian Moss and Sarpsborg.
