Van Vleuten, champion of the Women's Tour of Norway

The Dutch cyclist has prevailed in the general classification, thanks to the victory achieved on Saturday. Chloe Hosking has won the sprint of the last stage.

The Dutch Annemiek Van Vleuten, from the Spanish Movistar team, was proclaimed this Sunday the final winner of the Women's Tour of Norway at the end of the fourth and final stage, in which the Australian Chloe Hosking won the sprint.

Van Vleuten won the Norwegian event thanks to his victory on Saturday in the third stage, with a high finish.

It is the sixth Dutch victory in the seven contested editions of the event. The Dutch cycling only let slip the one of 2015, in which the American Megan Guarnier prevailed.

Van Vleuten started in the last stage, Drobak-Halden, of 141.6 km, with 39 seconds of advantage over the South African Ashleigh Moolman (Worx) and 47 over the Spanish Mavi García (Ale Ljubliana). But the Spanish lost her place on the podium by yielding 1:43 in this last stage over the main group.

The day concluded at the Halden circuit, where Movistar controlled the peloton and broke down the flight 12 km from the finish line.
