Marianne Vos (Jumbo Visma) took her third Tour of Scandinavia stage win in three days on Thursday, outsprinting Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig (FDJ-SUEZ-Futuroscope) on the uphill finish in Sarpsborg.

The Dutchwoman had to come the long way around in the final sprint but passed Uttrup Ludwig in the final meters. Shari Bossuyt (Canyon-SRAM) finished third.

An attack from Alice Barnes (Canyon-SRAM) in the final 25km saw the Brit hold a 20-second advantage for the first two laps of the finishing circuit, but she was caught going into the last 6km of the stage.
