Marianne has written the tenth edition of Gent-Wevelgem to her name. The Dutch rider sprinted to first place and gave the Team Jumbo-Visma women’s team its first ever victory.

CCC-Liv is left with mixed feelings following the seventh stage of the Giro Rosa. The orange squad was once more dominant in the final phase and prepared the sprint for Marianne Vos again to perfection.
Marianne brought her 2020 Giro Rosa victory count to three on Wednesday with another sprint finish win on stage six. Vos also scored a win on stage five. With three more stages to go, the question is: can she do it again?
Strong team play from CCC-Liv led to an amazing second stage victory in the Giro Rosa on Tuesday. The riders accelerated early in the race and consequently dropped a number of strong sprinters. After a flat final, Marianne sprinted to victory.
The third stage (142.2 kilometres) in the Giro Rosa was mostly relatively quiet. But the vicious final climb in Assisi offered more than enough spectacle. CCC-Liv cleverly piloted Marianne to the foot of the 900-meter-long climb.
The Giro Rosa starts this Friday with a team time trial of nearly 17 kilometres in Grosseto (Tuscany). CCC-Liv starts with a strong squad, consisting of Sofia Bertizzolo, Ashleigh Moolman-Pasio, Soraya Paladin, Sabrina Stultiens, Marianne Vos and Pauliena Rooijakkers.
