Race report
Breakaway riders Ana Vitória Magalhães and Alessia Missiaggia put 6 minutes into the peloton.

On the first of two climbs to Cavriana, Magalhães goes solo. A lap later, she still has a 2 minutes lead on the same hill.

But it’s not enough, and with 2 kilometres to go, she is caught. Then Anouska Koster makes a move, but her attempt ends in the final kilometre.

In the sprint for the win, Chiara Consonni edges out Lotte Kopecky, while Elisa Balsamo crosses the line in third.

Elisa Longo Borghini finishes ninth to keep the maglia rosa.
