Vårgårda Road Race 2019

If you looked at the forecast a few days ago you wouldn’t have believed it, some how it stayed dry for the whole race! Another win for Marta Bastianelli, her eighth of the year and yet her team, Virtu still can’t find a sponsor!

That’s the Swedish leg of the mini-Scandinavian tour done. Tomorrow it’s time to head up to Halden for a few days relaxing before the Ladies Tour of Norway gets underway.

Below is a selection of photos from today’s road race and if you enjoy them, then don’t forget to visit our Kickstarter for The Road Book 2019. A coffee table book of the 2019 women’s road cycling season!
