Stage 9 Giro Rosa
12 July 2019
With two days of racing left Anna van der Breggen is still second in the GC. DS Danny Stam looks back at todays race. "Today the course went as we expected.
The first climb of the day brought the GC riders together over the top. They held back after the first climb which enabled the change of a breakaway. Between the first and second climb the breakaway got eventually formed and took off. With no significant GC riders in the break Anna and Katie did no attempt to get them back.
We hoped that one of our non GC riders could be in the break away however the climbs proved too hard today."
Tomorrow’s stage will be the grand final of this years Giro Rosa with the climb towards Chiusaforte/ Malga Montasio. This 12 km long climb with percentages of over 10% will bring out the winner of this years Giro.
