On a soaking wet 184km stage contested mainly over dangerous pavement, the Swede soloed to the win in the Netherlands.

German team-mates Markus Eichler and Andreas Schillinger followed to complete a 1-2-3 for the German squad, formed in the winter as a link-up between NetApp and British team Endura.

Vacansoleil-DCM’s Dutch duo Wesley Kreder and Danny Van Poppel were fourth and fifth.

Olympic road race champion Marianne Vos won the women’s race – the opening World Cup contest - for the third year in a row on home soil.
