The 2021 Giro Donne wrapped up on Sunday in Cormons. Coryn Rivera (Team DSM) won the final stage from a breakaway of four while Anna van der Breggen (SD Worx) finished fourth on the stage to secure her fourth overall victory at the women’s Giro d’Italia Internazionale Femminile.

Van der Breggen claimed the pink jersey from Ruth Winder (Trek-Segafredo) on the mountainous stage 2 and held the lead all the way to the finale. She also won the individual time trial on stage 4.

In the end SD Worx swept the Giro Donne overall podium, with Ashleigh Moolman Pasio and Demi Vollering taking second and third overall.

Rivera’s stage win is the first victory for the American rider since stage 4 of the Lotto Belgium Tour in 2019.
