Women’s Cycling:Dutch Wins Italy’s One day Race


Cycling 🚴‍♀️ 

Dutchwoman Annemiek van Vleuten has won the Strade Bianche one-day race in Italy.

This is her first victory since her knee injury sustained at the 2018 World Championships.

The 36-year-old two-time world time-trial champion made a solo breakaway on the final gravel sector near Siena and maintained her advantage to win.

Van Vleuten, who fractured her spine when she crashed while leading the Olympic road race in 2016, was part of a group of 11 riders to break clear before she made her move over a steep climb and opened up a gap of 40 seconds, which others failed to close.

At end she said There was only one team-mate with me, only Lucy Kennedy, and it was really good for us to be there together but we were a bit outnumbered.
