Alex Manly (BikeExchange-Jayco) sprinted to victory on stage 4 of the Tour of Scandinavia after forming part of the six-rider group that contested the finish.

The Australian beat Chloe Hosking (Trek-Segafredo) and Laura Tomasi (UAE Team ADQ) on the line to take the win in Mysen.

After initially attacking with Alice Barnes (Canyon-SRAM) in the last 10km of the stage, the duo were joined by Hosking, Neve Bradbury (Canyon-SRAM), Anouska Koster (Jumbo Visma), and Tomasi in the final three kilometers and just managed to hold off the charging bunch in the final straight of the stage.
