The Spanish National Champion has won the Stage 7 of the 28th Giro Rosa (Isernia – Baronissi, 145 km), beating the Italian Soraya Paladin (Alè – Cipollini – Galassia) and the Polish Eugenia Bujak (BTC City Ljubljana). Anna Van der Breggen keeps the Pink Jersey as leader of the General Classification.

This was a very wavy and hilly stage, with the Intermediate Sprint of San Giorgio del Sannio and the Cathegorized Climb of Passo Serra as springboard to the finish of Baronissi. Thirteen riders were the protagonists of the day, in a breakaway that reached till 3’00” gap: Chloe Hosking and Soraya Paladin (Alè – Cipollini – Galassia), Alison Jackson (BePink – Cogeas), Eugenia Bujak (BTC City – Ljubljana), Elena Cecchini and Alexis Ryan (Canyon SRAM), Clara Koppenburg (Cervelo Bigla), Carmela Cipriani (Conceria Zabri – Fanini – Guerciotti), Rossella Ratto e Sheyla Gutierrez Ruiz (Cylance Pro Cycling), Tatiana Guderzo (Lensworld – Kuota), Sabrina Stultiens (Team Sunweb), Lauren Kitchen (WM3 Cycling Team). The Australian champion of Alè – Cipollini Galassia Team loses meters right before the Intermediate sprint, which was won by Stultiens. The climbers in the breakaway set the pace, Guderzo is first on Passo Serra, followed by Bujak and Stultiens. The gap goes up and down, from 1’30” to about 3’00”, then it started to decrease quickly. The twelve athletes resisted and could finalize the breakaway: the Spanish Champion Gutierrez was faster in the sprint than Paladin and Bujak, the main peloton arrives after 47” and the Cuban Arlenis Sierra (Astana Women Team) won the sprint. Anna Van der Breggen can keep the “Maglia Rosa” without problem and Elisa Longo Borghini completes the overall podium with Annemiek Van Vleuten and the Olympic Champion of Rio 2016.
Tomorrow there is the Stage 8 (Baronissi – Palinuro, 141 kms), with the KOM of Cuccaro Vetere not far from the famous Sea Village on the Cilento.




The rider of Cervelo Bigla Pro Cycling Team, bronze medal at the Road World Championships Doha 2016 and winner of the Dwars door Vlaanderen and Gent-Wevelgem in 2017, has taken the victory of Stage 6 in the 28th Giro Rosa (Roseto degli Abruzzi – Roseto degli Abruzzi, 116.160 kms), response of a bunch sprint where the Scandinavian could beat the American Coryn Rivera (Team Sunweb) and the Italian Giorgia Bronzini (Wiggle High5).

The stage was divided in four laps of a circuit around Roseto degli Abruzzi, including the short climb of Piana degli Ulivi (Cat. 3 KOM in the penultimate lap). The average speed of the first hour was over 40 km/h and it could not permit many attacks in the first kilometers. Alexis Ryan (Canyon SRAM) and the local athlete Carmela Cipriani of Conceria Zabri – Fanini – Guerciotti Team (she lives in Spoltore, near Pescara) earned only a few seconds. At the beginning of the lap 3 Claudia Koster (Team Veloconcept) and Alison Jackson (BePink- Cogeas) tried for a breakaway, the Canadian of the Italian Team directed by Walter Zini leaded the race at the intermediate sprint of Pagliare. The acceleration of the peloton was strong and the three riders Hannah Barnes (Canyon SRAM), Soraya Paladin (Alè – Cipollini – Galassia) and Sofia Bertizzolo (Astana Women’s Team). The Brit won the KOM of Piana degli Ulivi and she could earn a maximal gap of 48”. The teams of the sprinters didn’t want to lose this chance and the breakaway was catched by the peloton a few kilometers later. Even the last transit from Piana degli Ulivi could give the chances of a “finisseur” attack so the bunch sprint was launched. Lotta Lepistö from Finland took the stage win, with Coryn Rivera and Giorgia Bronzini just behind. A gap of 3” could give the possibility to Anna Van der Breggen to earn time against her main rivals Elisa Longo Borghini and Annemiek Van Vleuten in the General Classification.



The 34-years-old Dutch cyclist of Orica – Scott Team did an impressive performance in the ITT of Sant’Elpidio a Mare (FM), in the Marche region. She literally smashed the concurrence on the 12.7 km of the race, including the short but hard climb of Santa Lucia and Strada Cocciari, 400 meters with peaks of slope at about 30%.

After losing about two minutes in yesterday stage due to the wind, Annemiek Van Vleuten showed her big qualities in the chrono race, as she already won the prologues in Caserta 2014 and Ljubljana 2015. The physical effort has been huge for all the athletes in this discipline, as the average speed was of about 30 km/h, and the big gap earned against her main rivals: 41” from Anna Van der Breggen (second, but still leading the General Classification) and 1’15” from Elisa Longo Borghini (Third).



The “Oranje” cycling celebrates in the Province of Pordenone: Annemiek Van Vleuten is the winner of the Stage 2 (Zoppola – Montereale Valcellina, 122 km) after a breakaway in the final kilometers with her compatriot Anna Van der Breggen (Boels Dolmans, second) and Elisa Longo Borghini (Wiggle High5, third). The Olympic and European Champion is also the new Pink Jersey for the bonification. Anna is back to wear the Maglia Rosa since she triumphed in the final stage in year 2015 in San Domenico di Varzo.



It’s the day of the 2017 Big Start of the Giro Rosa, the day of the Team Time Trial: the first Maglia Rosa will be decided along the 11.5 kms between Aquileia and Grado. The route is totally flat and it develops in the Laguna of Grado. The teams will turn on the right 100 meters after the start in Piazza Capitolo, where the Team Presentation took place last evening. The majestic scenary of the Laguna will be the second part of the stage until arriving in Grado. The final kilometers have many curves in the city centre, with an extraordinary beauty, and it ends in Largo Biagio Marin, in front of the Municipality Palace.

Many teams can reach the stage victory, the only trick today can be the wind. The first team at the start, Giusfredi – Bianchi, will leave at 4:45 PM, other teams will start every three minutes. The last will be the Boels Dolmans Cycling Team, with the last year winner Megan Guarnier.

Abu Dhabi, 18. Oktober 2016 – Die zweite UCI Cycling Gala, die heute abend in Abu Dhabi stattfand, feierte die diesjährigen größten Erfolge im professionellen Radfahren.

Die neu gekrönte Elite Amalie Dideriksen und Peter Sagan zählten zu den 24 Weltmeistertiteln, der Mannschaften und Nationen aus der UCI WorldTour, der UCI Women’s WorldTour, den Olympischen Spielen, Paralympischen Spielen und der UCI Road Weltmeisterschaft.

Für ihre zweite Auflage kehrte die UCI Cycling Gala in die Hauptstadt der Vereinigten Arabischen Emirate zurück und wurde erneut vom Abu Dhabi Sports Council und der United Arab Emirates Cycling Federation in Zusammenarbeit mit RCS Sport veranstaltet. Es dauerte zwei Tage vor dem vier-etappen Radrennen der Emirate der Abu Dhabi Tour (20.-23. Oktober).

Neben der Veranstaltung wurden die Teams, die an der Abu Dhabi Tour teilnahmen, beginnend am Donnerstag 20 und Ende am Sonntag, 23. Oktober auf der Bühne vorgestellt.

Neben den Titelpreisen an die diesjährigen UCI World Champions und WorldTour-Sieger, war es einer der Olympiaden, die heute Abend einen weiteren Sonderpreis bei der UCI Cycling Gala erhielten: Elia Viviani. “Der Gewinnende Geist” ist ein einzigartiger Abu Dhabi Sports Council Preis für den Fahrer, der Hartnäckigkeit, Stärke und unbeugsamen Geist in der Erreichung des Sieges in diesem Jahr zeigte. Der Italiener, der das Omnium-Podium bei den Olympischen Spielen in London 2012 nach so langer Zeit verpasst hatte, wartete vier Jahre auf seine sportliche Rache und gewann in der letzten Omnium-Saison sogar mit einem Sturz, und schließlich gewann er die olympische Goldmedaille in Rio dieses Jahr.

Mit drei großen Radsportveranstaltungen in der gleichen Woche im Mittleren Osten, freuen wir uns sehr darauf, dass Abu Dhabi im globalen Radsport der sportliche Scheinwerfer ist. ”

UCI-Präsident Brian Cookson sagte: “Es war eine hervorragende Straßen Saison für Männer und Frauen, nicht zuletzt auf der Rückseite der Olympischen Spiele, Paralympische Spiele und der Eröffnungs-UCI WorldTour für Frauen. Die UCI Cycling Gala gibt uns die Gelegenheit, einige der phänomenalen Leistungen aus einer unvergesslichen Saison zu feiern. Das Timing dieser Feier könnte nicht besser sein, nur wenige Tage nach der UCI Road Weltmeisterschaft in Doha, Katar, eine erste im Nahen Osten und am Vorabend die Abu Dhabi Tour. ”
