Giro Rosa: Stage 7 Results & Comments

We expected a bunch sprint and we got a bunch sprint. Marianne Vos easily took her third stage win of Giro Rosa when she outsprinted the former double World Champion Giorgia Bronzini and Shelley Olds. Mara Abbotts stays in the Pink Jersey with a solid lead to Italian Tatiana Guderzo.

Bronzini said: “I really tried today but Vos today gave us no chance. No excuse though, she was simply the fastest. I think having lost the chance to win the Giro made her even more hungry for this stage win”.

Shelly Olds were happy taking third place in a difficult sprint: “I was alone so I had to use Vos’ Bronzini’s trains. I’m really happy to share the podium with them. My team was focused on protecting Hausler so she can keep her second place overall”.

Tomorrow is the final stage of Giro Rosa. It’s a time trial of 16 km in Cremona and we can expect high temperatures.
