After 2 years (the last victory was in Frattamaggiore), the two times Road World Champion has won a beautiful sprint in San Fior di Sotto, after a very tough stage, especially in the final kilometers with the short climbs of Sarmede and Colle Umberto. Marta Tagliaferro (Alè Cipollini) was the protagonist of today’s solo breakaway, attacking after the start in Gaiarine and resisting for two-thirds of the stage. The group reached Tagliaferro before the climb in Sarmede: here Elisa Longo Borghini (Wiggle High5) attacked to pass first on the top of the KOM. The italian athlete was reached by Katarzyna Niewiadoma (Rabo-Liv), Megan Guarnier (Boels-Dolmans) and Evelyn Stevens (Boels-Dolmans). The quartet obtained a maximal gap of 50” but the chasing group accelerated and reached the attackers. Giorgia Bronzini has been the faster in the final sprint and got her first stage victory after two years. Megan Guarnier, second today and first last year, has obtained the Pink and Ciclamino Jersey. Elisa Longo Borghini is the new leader of the Mountain Classification, and Giorgia Bronzini leads the Italian Classification. Nothing changed in the young Classification, with Katarzyna Niewiadoma as leader.

Tomorrow there is the first uphill stage finish, from Tarcento to Montenars, to remember the tragical earthquake of Friuli in 1976.
