March 5/16 11:55 am - Armitstead WIns Strade Bianche, Kirchmann 10th at first race of the UCI Women's WorldTour

Posted by Editoress on 03/5/16

World Champion Lizzie Armitstead (Boels Dolmans Cycling Team) won the second edition of the Strade Bianche Women, first race of the UCI Women's WorldTour.  Armitstead arrived at the line 3s ahead of the European champion Katarzyna Niewiadoma (Liv Rabo Women Cycling Team) and 13s ahead of Emma Johansson (Wiggle High5).

A few seconds after crossing the finish line, the winner Lizzie Armitstead said: "It's amazing for me to think that I won the first race of UCI Women's World Tour in history, it is absolutely special. After winning in Belgium last week I knew I did not suffer from the curse of the rainbow jersey. I could honor it today. We worked together in the last ten kilometres and I went on the final climb. It worked out perfectly. "
