We predicted a bunch sprint for today’s stage and that’s exactly what happened. Scotti Lechuga (Hagens Berman-Supermint) did shake things up a little bit when she put in a late attack in the final 20 kilometers, but it wasn’t to be. After 120 kilometers, the peloton arrived at the finish line in Lendinara all together.
After teammate Giorgia Bronzini won stage 1 out of a break of ten, today it was Chloe Hosking’s (Wiggle-High5) turn to throw her hands up in the air.
None of the GC favourites took any bonus seconds at the finish line, so the GC stays the same, with only some minor changes in the time differences, probably due to the bonus seconds at the intermediate sprint.
Evelyn Stevens (Boels-Dolmans) is still in pink, young jersey wearer Kasia Niewiadoma (Rabo-Liv) is in second place and points leader Megan Guarnier (Boels-Dolmans) sits in third.
