ANNEMIEK VAN VLEUTEN TAMES THE “KAISER” ZONCOLAN

podio tappa

Historical day for Women Cycling, the 9th stage of “Giro Rosa U.C.I. WWT” climbed for the first time the “Kaiser” – Zoncolan from the terrible side of Ovaro. Annemiek Van Vleuten was dominating at this point not only the stage but also the whole Giro. The Mitchelton Scott’s cyclist, time trial World Champion and Pink Jersey from the individual uphill time trial to Campo Moro Dam, arrived with a lead of 40’’ from a determined Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio (Cervelo-Bigla Pro Cycling), the only one who has tried to climb Zoncolan with her, and with 3’ on her teammate Amanda Spratt.

Van Vleuten booked with this result the final victory, increasing the gap on the second one at 3’35’’ (Moolman-Pasio) and with about 6’ on Amanda Spratt, who still leads the GPM classification. Van Vleuten is also the new Cyclamine jersey, Italian Sofia Bertizzolo (Astana Women’s Team) defended the White jersey from Nadia Quagliotto (G.S. Top Girls Fassa Bortolo) attack, and the Olympic bronze medal Elisa Longo Borghini (Wiggle High5), 9th in the overall classification, is the best of the Italian riders.
