Marianne Vos sprinted to victory at Dwars door Vlaanderen on Wednesday, outsmarting a strong Lidl-Trek team. This is the Dutchwoman's 250th career victory on the road. 

The Visma-Lease a Bike rider had never won the Tour of Flanders warmup race before, but took victory at her second attempt in Waregem, outpowering Shirin van Anrooij (Lidl-Trek). It meant a day of double victory for Visma-Lease a Bike, after Matteo Jorgenson had won the men's equivalent earlier in the day.
