12,7km ITT today at the Giro Rosa. Looked flat on the stage profile according to the Italians but in real it included 2 really steep climbs with gradients up to 30%. Many rode roadbikes with TTbars, and some with disc wheels. Annemiek van Vleuten went full on TTsetup. Watch the highlights here:

Anna van der Breggen digged so deep so she didn’t know what to do after the finishline. but van Vleuten won with 41(!) seconds. I’m happy as she:

Everything can still happen. A flat stage tomorrow before 3 mountain stages.

Giro d’Italia Femminile stage 4

A flat sprinters stage but the wind made difference. Or had some teams making the difference so Anna van der Breggen got even more seconds in the lead and Annemiek van Vleuten dropping a bit. Ended with the tightest sprint I’ve seen:

Tour of California stage 1

Yesterday the latest event in the Women WorldTour started in USA. And what is better than winning your first WorldTour race as National Champion in your home country. Think Megan Guarnier was pretty happy with the victory:
