MARIANNE VOS WINS IN ASSISI, ANNEMIEK VAN VLEUTEN KEEPS THE PINK JERSEY
Marianne Vos won the third stage of the Giro Rosa 2020, from Santa Fiora to Assisi for a total of 142.2 kilometers, overcoming Cecilie Uttrup Ludwig and Elisa Longo Borghini on the tough ramps of the Assisi finish line. The final seven hundred meters, at a 15% gradient, were the ideal springboard for the Dutchman who confirms himself as a specialist in arrivals of this type. Annemiek Van Vleuten chose to control the race, smoothly, and kept the pink jersey.

The start of the hamlet took place this morning at 12:20 from Santa Fiora. The first hour of running took place quietly, with not particularly high speeds, despite the path full of ups and downs. The heat, more than thirty degrees today in the race area, certainly affected the athletes performance. The stage began to liven up when there were about eighty kilometers to go: several athletes tried to go ahead, but without succeeding in the attempt. Among these we point out Rachel Neylan, Cronos-Casa Dorada Women team, protagonist of a nice attack at twenty-eight from the finish.

The acceleration of the group, upon entering the city, has definitively extinguished all hope of the fugitives. At the beginning of the final ramp the ending was immediately clear: Marianne Vos, with a beautiful action, overtook Ludwig and Longo Borghini, winning the stage.
