MARIANNE VOS SECOND VICTORY IN TERRACINA
The Giro Rosa speaks more and more Dutch. After the victory of Annemiek Van Vleuten in the second stage and the consequent pink jersey, the first success of Marianne Vos a few days ago, today in the fifth stage, from Terracina to Terracina, for a total of 110 kilometers, is still Marianne Vos to prevail. Royal sprint for the Dutch champion who, with apparent ease, overtook Lotte Kopecki and Elizabeth Deignan in the sprint on the Terracina seafront. No problem for Annemiek Van Vleuten who, in front of the group in the final kilometers, defended the pink jersey.

Stage from the final difficult to predict from the meeting point of departure. The solutions could be twofold: sprint arrival or arrival of a group of fugitives as happened yesterday in Tivoli. In reality, as often happens, reality has far exceeded any fantasy. We reached the sprint but after a sparkling stage, in which the teams of athletes aiming for victory had to struggle to bring the group to the final. The attacks followed one another from the first kilometers: a few seconds ahead and the group returned to being compact. The finish was drumming: Elisa Longo Borghini's attack livened up the situation when the finish line was just under twenty kilometers away, in a slightly downhill stretch.

The athlete from Ornavasso managed a few seconds advantage for several kilometers, proving to be in excellent physical condition. To mend the gap, athletes of the caliber of Annemiek Van Vleuten and Amanda Spratt have moved. A group of five forwards and then the whole platoon returned to the Trek Segafredo team athlete. At this point the sprint showed the clear superiority of Marianne Vos who thus conquered the second stage success in this Giro Rosa 2020.
