Video: Watch Marianne Vos take the win at La Course

Dutch multiple World Champion takes a brave line to get into the mix and takes the win as a result

Marianne Vos La Course

On-board camera vids are quickly becoming an established part of road cycling, with plenty of excellent videos emerging from the Tour de France, along with some amusing ones. This one's from La Course, the women's race held on the Champs Elysées circuit on the same day as the last stage of the Tour, and it's a great watch.

The camera, a Shimano CM-1000, is fitted to the bars of eventual winner Marianne Vos (Rabobank-Liv). Coming up the Rue de Rivoli just over a kilometre from the finish she's well back in the pack, but a daring sprint up the inside, dodging the legs of the barriers along the way, makes up plenty of places and she muscles into fifth wheel behind Specialized-Lululemon's Lisa Brennauer. Vos then follow's Brennauer's wheel round the Place de la Concorde and onto the Champs Elysées before making a break for the line, getting the better of Giant-Shimano's Kirsten Wild who's just visible right of shot in the final shakedown. You can clearly hear how happy Vos is to have won when the crosses the line, too!

Applause
Amazing, and that lunge over the line was incredible to watch on the TV.
She's got to be right up there as one of the outright GOAT - 16 world titles to her name!!

Her win was incredible. These videos that Giant (Liv) keep posting are great viewing as well.
