MARIANNE VOS IS BACK TO ROAR AT THE GIRO ROSA

Marianne Vos is back! The Dutch “super talent” won the 8th stage of “Giro Rosa U.C.I. WWT”, from San Giorgio di Perlena (Fara Vicentino) to Breganze of 126,2 km. The Women European champion, who won for three times the ride organized by Giuseppe Rivolta and hasn’t been at the start of the last three editions, arrived first in the sprint with the Italian Elisa Longo Borghini (Wiggle High5) coming from Ornavasso and the compatriot of Team Sunweb Lucinda Brand, who escaped in the last km of the stage after the GPM of San Giorgio di Perlena at about 10km to the finish.

The race has been hard since the first km, due to the high pace of the bunch going to the famous Rosina hill. The decisive escape arrived only at few km to the finish, with the three riders that came to the final sprint for the win. The sprint of the second group, lead by the Pink jersey was won by the two times World Champion Giorgia Bronzini (Cylance Pro Cycling), just before Soraya Paladin from Cimadolmo (Alè Cipollini) and the young riders classification leader Sofia Bertizzolo (Astana Women’s Team).

Nothing has changed in the overall classification, where Annemiek Van Vleuten (Mitchelton Scott) still wears the Pink jersey. Marianne Vos (Waowdeals Pro Cycling Team), is the new Cyclamine jersey for the points leader, Amanda Spratt (Mitchelton Scott) still wears the Green jersey, Sofia Bertizzolo (Astana Women’s Team) is again the best into the young riders classification and Elisa Longo Borghini (Wiggle High5) is the best Italian rider. Tomorrow, Saturday 14th July the “Stage” of this year will bring the 134 athletes riding from Tricesimo (UD) to the hill of the “legendary” Monte Zoncolan. 126,2 the km to ride for the women.
