AMAZING SHOW AT THE FIRST UPHILL FINISH OF GIRO ROSA

A lot of emotions today at the first uphill finish of “29° Giro Rosa U.C.I. WWT” at Gerola Alta: Amanda Spratt (Mitchelton Scott) wins after 114,10km. The stage has started from Sovico, homecity of the boss Giuseppe Rivolta at the presence of Davide Cassani (coach of Italian Men National Cycling team), Claudio Chiappucci (ex pro) and Justine Mattera, a showgirl fan of cyclism. The favourite teams controlled few attacks and the one tried by Jessica Parra (Servetto – Stradalli Alurecycling) has been caught near the intermediate sprint in Delebio, won by Riejanne Markus (Waowdeals Pro Cycling) before Dani King. Elisa Longo Borghini, Wiggle High5 captain, has had mechanical troubles in the flat part of the stage: she had to change three times her bike before restarting. Mitchelton Scott and Canyon-Sram have worked hard for Annemiek Van Vleuten and Kasia Niewiadoma, their captains.

At the start of the GPM of the day, Longo Borghini closed the gap and leaded the race with the hill climbers of Cervelo Bigla Ashleigh Moolman Pasio and Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig. The Pink jersey Ruth Winder dropped off since the first km of the climb and at 4 km to the finish, Kasia Niewiadoma, Moolman, Van Vleuten and Spratt tried to escape. The Australian of Mitchelton  Scott leaded the front group with some meters on  Merino (Movistar), Uttrup Ludwig (Cervelo), Niewiadoma (Canyon – SRAM) and Van Vleuten (Mitchelton – Scott). Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig tried to chase her, but Spratt has been really concerned today and won just before her mate team Van Vleuten and South African Moolman – Pasio (Cervelo Bigla). Tomorrow the 7th stage, Lanzada-Diga di Campo Moro, a trial of 15 km with more than 1000m of height difference which could change again the overall classification. (Photos of Flaviano Ossola)
