“Triplete” for the American in this Giro Rosa: with the time of 36’21” Evelyn Stevens took the best time in the Individual Time Trial from Albisola Superiore to Varazze beating Anna Van der Breggen and Elisa Longo Borghini for 4”. The result is an answer about the condition of the American Champion, who is going to take an eye to Rio: Nobody has won more stages than Stevens in this Giro.
Elisa Longo Borghini took an exceptional performance in the Time Trial (she is the Italian National Champion in this discipline) after the problems on the climb of Madonna della Guardia yesterday.
Anna Van der Breggen, winner of the Giro 2015, has earned one position in the General Classification: she is third now (Mara Abbott is now fourth) with 1’53” delay, Stevens is second with 34” from Megan Guarnier in Pink Jersey.
Tomorrow’s Stage, from Rescaldina to Legnano, is run on the roads of the Coppa Bernocchi and it can give a chance to the sprinters remained in the race.
