Marianne Vos is back in the game and she is out with vengeance. Since the Jumbo-Visma rider was disqualified from the Vårgårda WestSweden, she decided to prove why she is known as the best of the best. On 9th August, Tuesday, Vos went down in history but it was for all the right reasons. Marianne Vos won the first Women’s WorldTour race.

The new Women’s WorldTour race is stretched over a duration of 6 days. The opening stage was located in Denmark and many big names were to be part of the race, representing their teams. Inside the race, no real breakaways were made owing to the toughness of the stage at Nordsjælland,  Trek-Segafredo decided to give it their all and strategized their whole team out font to support  Amalie Dideriksen, their race leader, but Amalie only managed to end up in 6th position.

On the other hand, Vos was right to launch her bike into a sprint at the right time. The memory of the “puppy dog” position no longer haunts her as she took the win, while Megan Jastrab (Team DSM) and Shari Bossuyt (Canyon-SRAM) followed second and third. Marianne wanted to make it up to her team for Sunday’s loss, and that she did, In her own words:

I just wanted to race well and do something for the team

Vos now holds the yellow jersey and has a lead time of 4 seconds on Megan Jastrab. The plan at Jumbo-Visma was to secure Amber Kraak so that she will take the mountain jersey. Vos said to the media:

We had the plan to try to take the mountain jersey with Amber, and then you need to put in energy as well, and you never know if it’s going to be enough for the final sprint.

Vos continued to praise her teammate:

But she always works for the team, so it’s nice to do something in support of her, and today both plans worked out. It is going to be difficult to keep both jerseys tomorrow, it’s tough every day, but we are motivated to try our best
