Ladies Tour of Norway
Prologue: Halden City - Stage Details

ORICA-AIS finished the opening prologue of the Ladies Tour of Norway with two top ten places courtesy of Melissa Hoskins and Annette Edmondson this evening.

The pair, who finish seventh and eighth respectively, came into the three-day race after a period of track racing for the recent Commonwealth Games, where Edmondson won the scratch race gold medal.

On what was a short but extremely technical course both finished 12seconds Marianne Vos (RBW) who won in 3min 39seconds.

“Nettie (Edmondson) and Mel (Hoskins) were certainly right in the thick of it,” sport director Gene Bates said.
