Lorena Wiebes took the first win of her season after a scrappy sprint at the first-ever women’s Scheldeprijs on Wednesday. The Dutch sprinter benefitted from a strong and determined lead out from her DSM team, patiently hiding on Norwegian team-mate Susanne Andersen’s wheel until the final 100m.

A number of teams had tried to impose themselves on the final, with Movistar particularly visible, though Emma Norsgaard opened up too early, finishing second. Continental team Valcar Travel and Service are another squad with a proven lead out and Elisa Balsamo managed third place.
