None of the first three UCI Women’s WorldTour races so far have been completely livestreamed, but the Trofeo Binda organisers did offer us live images from the finish in Cittiglio. With the peloton crossing that finish line five times before the arrival would determine the winner of the race, it was certainly a step up from the first UCIWWT race in Italy this year, the Strade Bianche.
The liveticker of the organisation complemented the live feed from the finish, but there are obviously still some images we weren’t able to see during the race. Thankfully Sean Robinson of Vélofocus was there to capture the action in Italy, so we can present you with yet another wonderful photo gallery of a Women’s WorldTour race. Scroll through to the bottom for results and a 22 minute highlights video by RAI Sport 1.
