Giro Rosa Stage 2
Good grief what a tough course. No surprise that Annemiek van Vleuten (Mitchelton-Scott) used the gravel sector as her launching pad. The gravel climb was so tough she actually fell of the bike and had to run the remaining meters. She has 1:16 margin over Anna van der Breggen (Boels Dolmans).
Giro Rosa Stage 3
A super exciting uphill finish. Living legend Marianne Vos (CCC) out kicked her rivals nearly collapsing after crossing the line.
Tour de France Stage 15
A big day for the general classification with a mountain top finish on Grand Colombier followed. The big guns did not disappoint. Jumbo Visma laid waste to the peloton with Wout van Aeart (Jumbo Visma) setting a blistering pace. Defending champ Egan Bernal (Ineos) and Nairo Quintana (Akrea) were jettisoned out the back. Next up was Tom Dumoulin’s (Jumbo Visma) turn for Jumbo Visma. We’ve seen the line up before with Sepp Kuss (Jumbo Visma) usually doing the final kilometer for Roglic but the yellow jersey must have sensed something attacking the small group drawing out fellow Slovenian Tadej Pogacar (UAE) and Richie Porte (Trek). Kuss followed then quickly moved over the top of Roglic. Then Porte countered with Roglic and Pogacar in tow. Nearing the finish Pogacar went and Roglic followed. Pogacar wins his second stage claws back 4 time bonus seconds on Roglic. 1 week to go!
