Three Top 10s for Maria Giulia Confalonieri at the Women's Tour

Maria Giulia Confalonieri finished 9th on the final stage of the Women's Tour, her 3rd top 10 result of the week.

The final stage in Oxfordshire certainly didn’t disappoint, rounding off a thrilling week of racing with a fast, rolling route through the Cotswolds.

The GC teams were keen to keep things controlled and despite a number of early attacks (including several attempts by Laura Ascenio), it wasn’t until we were more than halfway through the stage that a group managed to get away. We, unfortunately, missed the move but worked hard as a team to help bring the gap down and the race came back together.

A technical but flat finish was the final test of the week for the sprinters, with Kathrin Schweinberger setting up for Confalonieri to lead us home in 9th place.

Final results: 3rd in the team competition, Marta Lach 14th and Confalonieri 16th in the general classification.
