A bad fall, at the last kilometer of the seventh stage of the Giro Rosa, from Nola - Vulcano Buono to Maddaloni, involved Annemiek Van Vleuten, Marianne Vos and Amanda Spratt. These athletes are in hospital for updates, for Van Vleuten there is a fear of a fracture of the arm, for Spratt a fracture of the collarbone. News are expected in the evening. Spratt and Van Vleuten, who is currently in the pink jersey anyway, appeared very sore at the finish. The stage was won by Lotte Kopecky who overtook Elizabeth Deignan and Katarzyna Niewiadoma in the third passage on the tear that led the group to Maddaloni's arrival.

The stage, treacherous and besieged by the sultry heat, was experienced on the attack of five athletes: Maria Novolodskaya, Aude Biannic, Alison Jackson, Silvia Zanardi and Ainar Elbusto. The athletes have achieved a considerable advantage but not sufficient for the stage victory. The last to be picked up by the platoon was Maria Novolodskaya, also on the attack yesterday, when the fireworks were being accessed for the final sprint, in a small group.

A bad fall involved Marianne Vos, Annemiek Van Vleuten and Amanda Spratt, in the first positions of the peloton in order not to risk and play the stage. The winner was Lotte Kopecky who, after the placings of the past few days, has finally managed to get on the top step of the podium. In second position Elizabeth Deignan, third Katarzyna Niewiadoma. The caravan awaits updates on the health status of the world champion and current leader of the general classification.
