Norwegian champion Vita Heine has won the final stage of the Tour of Uppsala. On the third and last stage she attacked uphill in the last of nine laps of 14,5 kilometers. Race leader Sara Mustonen could follow at the first attack, but wasn’t able to follow when Heine attacked on a second short hill. Heine then kept pushing and won solo. She came only one second short to pass Mustonen in the general classification.
