Marianne Vos sets the trio at the Giro Rosa: the sixth stage, 97.5 kilometers from Torre del Greco to Nola-Vulcano Buono, ended in a sprint, as largely predictable and the Dutch champion did not wait. On the very hot finish line of Nola-Vulcano Buono, Marianne Vos clearly preceded Hanna Barnes and Lotte Kopecky in the sprint. Annemiek Van Vleuten controlled the race, keeping the pink jersey for the fifth consecutive day.

After the start, which took place at 12:00 from Torre del Greco, the athletes encountered streets crowded with many fans, despite the asphyxiating heat that this summer finale is giving to the most important women's race in the world. Vos' final victory was heralded by an incredible action from the CCC-Liv team midway through the race. Some athletes tried to move the race, especially in the final kilometers, unfortunately without any luck. The attack that kept the audience in suspense took place less than thirty kilometers from the finish when Maria Novodolskaya came out of the platoon, for her a maximum advantage of 28 ''. At least two from the finish, however, the group regrouped for the final sprint.

So Marianne Vos placed the third seal, making it clear to everyone that, when the stages are of this type, overcoming it is really difficult. Really good performance even for Ilaria Sanguineti and Giorgia Bariani, who finish the stage among the top ten in the order of arrival.
