The US National Champion got the absolute victory in the biggest Cycling Stage for Women, the second athlete from the United States after Mara Abbott in 2010 and 2013. Born in Glen Falls on 4th May 1985, last year she has won the Strade Bianche, and she finished third the Giro and the World Championships in Richmond. The Giro Rosa 2016 has been her most important goal of the season and now she is taking a look to the Olympic Race of Rio, where she wants to win a medal.

In this Giro Megan Guarnier has been one of the most constant of the favorites: race leader in San Fior after the first stage, she had to give the leadership the day after in Montenars. In the very hot and tough stage in Alassio/Madonna della Guardia she could be back in Pink. Second place for Evelyn Stevens at 34” and third is Anna Van der Breggen at 1’53”. The final stage in Verbania has been won by Thalita De Jong (Rabo-Liv), Cyclocross World Champion 2016. Second was Riejanne Markus (Liv-Plantur) and third Maria Giulia Confalonieri again on the podium after Lovere (2°) and Legnano (3°)
