Trek-Segafredo claimed the victory at the UCI Women's World Tour Vargarda TTT.

The next appointment of the UCI Women's WorldTour took the peloton to Sweden for a fight against the clock over a route of 35.6 kilometres. The American team stopped the clock in 43 minutes and 53 seconds, being 25 seconds faster than Canyon-SRAM and 46 seconds faster than team Sunweb.

European time trial champion Ellen van Dijk, Elisa Longo-Borghini, Trixi Worrack, Tayler Wiles, Ruth Winder and Audrey Cordon-Ragot reached an average speed of 48.6 kilometres per hour. "It's such a great discipline, and I love it so much because everyone on the team is happy, also the staff," said Van Dijk.

"It's really a win of everyone, not just the riders. We do it all together. It's actually a shame that this is the only time we can really do this, but it's a good morale boost for everyone in the team. It's just great to celebrate all this together – good vibes!"

The Dutchwoman has been suffering from a painful back but she didn't have any problems in the competition. "My back was feeling good, and I felt good in the race today," she explained. "Now, of course, afterwards, it's a bit more painful after the adrenaline is gone. It's a bit stiff, but I will make a good recovery, and hopefully tomorrow it will be fine again. I will have to see – at the European's [Championships] road race it was really bad, but I have good hopes that tomorrow it will be better again.

Lizzie Deignan will be replacing Tyler at the road race of the Swedish competition.
