The British teams dominated the race with Williams winning from Yanto Barker (Team UK Youth) whilst third was Alexander Gingsjö (Team People4You Unaas cycling-Powered).


Williams (right) and Barker (left) battle it out with a local rider for the win.

“I had decided to be at the front from the start” said Williams “and I joined in the first breakaway which turned out to stick. Then I tried to be calm in the finale and get myself in a better position than Yanto. It was really tight across the finish line.”

“Our team is really motivated and many of us are in great shape so we’ll see how it goes simply” added Peter Williams of Team IG Sigma Sport.

Today will see the first road stage Östersund and Vemdalen, 145km and almost 1,800 meters of climbing before the finish at Vemdalsskalet.
