Van Dijk and Johansson net second and third from small break

Marianne VosGrabbing one of the few top races she had yet to win, Marianne Vos (Rabobank) sped to victory in the women’s Tour of Flanders today, outsprinting three breakaway companions to the line.

The Dutch world champion was quicker than Ellen Van Dijk (Specialized-lululemon) in the finale, and also bested Emma Johansson (Orica-AIS) and Elisa Longo Borghini (Hitec Products UCK).

The four-women break initially comprised Vos, Johansson and Longo Borghini, with Van Dijk then able to get across to them. Johansson tried a solo move but was caught before the end, and had to be satisfied with third.

Vos’s success comes after three near-misses in the race. She was second three years ago and was also third in both 2011 and 2007. Her triumph today comes after an earlier World Cup win this year in the Tour de Drenthe, and solidifies her lead in the overall standings.

The victory is a relief for the Dutchwoman, who had been sick in the lead-up to the race and admitted that she wasn't certain how it would work out. Those fears were unfounded, with the dominant rider notching up yet another success to her palmares.
