Race report
Kristen Faulkner and Gaia Realini attack from the maglia rosa group on the climb to Fai Della Paganella. Lucinda Brand, Brodie Chapman, Anouska Koster and Erica Magnaldi go after them, but without really closing in. The four crest the Passo Duron 2 minutes after the leaders.

Annemiek van Vleuten and Marta Cavalli overhaul the chasers on the Passo Danone, while Faulkner heads out alone.

Cavalli puts pressure on Van Vleuten on descent. They come together in the valley and rejoin Realini, while Elisa Longo Borghini bridges the gap to the chase group.

Faulkner takes a commanding victory, while Van Vleuten stays in pink.
