AD OMEGNA TAPPA E MAGLIA A RUTH WINDER

Arrivo

E’ l’americana Ruth Winder la grande protagonista della quinta frazione del “Giro Rosa U.C.I. WWT”, la Omegna-Omegna di 122,6 chilometri. La forte portacolori del Team Sunweb ha battuto allo sprint le due compagne di fuga con le quali si era avvantaggiata sul resto del gruppo a circa venti chilometri dalla conclusione, relegando al secondo posto la connazionale Tayler Wiles (Trek Drops) ed al terzo la brianzola di Seregno Alice Maria Arzuffi (Bizkaia Durango Euskadi Murias).

La prima fase di corsa è stata caratterizzata dalla fuga di un drappello composto da una dozzina di atlete tra cui la maglia blu Maria Giulia Confalonieri (Valcar PBM). Le fuggitive, dopo aver guadagnato un vantaggio massimo di un minuto, sono state raggiunte dal gruppo poco prima della salita verso il G.P.M. di seconda categoria collocato a Someraro (Loc. Levo), poi vinto dalla polacca Katarzyna Niewiadoma (Canyon Sram Racing) sulla padrona di casa, sostenuta da un calorosissimo pubblico, Elisa Longo Borghini (Wiggle High5). Lungo la discesa verso Armeno è nata l’azione decisiva di giornata, che ha portato Ruth Winder, Tayler Wiles ed Alice Maria Arzuffi a giocarsi il successo finale, andato alla statunitense Winder, che ha compiuto 25 anni proprio ieri.

Grazie a questo successo la Winder ha conquistato anche la maglia rosa, la sprinter olandese Kirsten Wild (Wiggle High5) ha mantenuto la maglia ciclamino, l’ex campionessa europea junior Sofia Bertizzolo (Astana Women’s Team), è balzata in vetta alla classifica della maglia bianca riservata alla miglior giovane, mentre la piemontese di Ornavasso Elisa Longo Borghini ha conservato senza troppi affanni la maglia verde e la maglia blu. Domani sesta tappa, con partenza da Sovico ed arrivo in vetta alla salita di Gerola Alta dopo 114,1 chilometri. (Foto di Flaviano Ossola)
