Otley's Lizzie Armitstead produced an impressive performance to win the Belgian one-day race Omloop van het Hageland on Sunday for the second time.

The 25-year-old Boels-Dolmans rider edged out Sweden's Emma Johansson (Orica-AIS) in a two-way sprint, to repeat her 2012 success in the race.

Armitstead, who won a silver medal in the women's road race at the 2012 London Olympics, is preparing for a bid to win the Tour of Flanders on April 6.
