March 20/16 12:02 pm - Trofeo Alfredo Binda - Comune di Cittiglio WWT

Posted by Editoress on 03/20/16

On Sunday, world champion Elizabeth Armitstead (Boels Dolmans) won the 18th Alfredo Binda Trophy in Cittiglio, Italy, the third event in the 2016 calendar of the Women's World Tour. She attacked in the final kilometre when she was in the company of seven other riders who broke away during the second last climb of the Orino, 20 km from the end. This was the second successive victory for Armitstead in this spring classic.  Leah Kirchmann (Liv-Plantur) was the top Canadian in 13th place, with the main bunch at 1:06.

Armitstead won the race with arms up, well ahead of her teammate Megan Guarnier, who beat the rest of the break. Third place went to Jolanda Neff (Servetto Foonton); followed by Emma Johannson, Alena Amialiusik, Katarzyna Niewiadoma and Annemiek Van Vleuten.






Marta Bastianelli (Ale Cipollini) was the first to attack, straight after the start. The first solid attack was made by Carmen Small (Cervelo) and Ann Sophie Duyck (Totsport Vlaanderen) who, about 50 km into the race, had about a minute advantage on the group. On the Casale climb, Small broke away from Duyck with the peloton at about 50 seconds. The front group came back together 50 km from the finish.

On the second last time climbing the Orino, just after 90 km, a group of eight broke away: Armitstead, Guarnier, Emma Johansson (Wiggle), Anna Van Der Breggen (Raboliv), Katarzyna Niewiadoma (Raboliv), Alena Amialiusik (Canyon), Annemiek Van Vleuten (Orica) and Neff.

After the race, Armitstead explained: "on the first attack, I worked a bit harder than the coach wanted. I didn't want to lose sight of Neff. Bronzini was also very strong. I was supposed to be working for Megan Guarnier today but I tried an attack and it went well. It's very special to win wearing the rainbow jersey in Italy because the jersey is more recognised and appreciated here."

"My main objective now is to win the Olympics and realize my dream. I miss track cycling but I don't miss the training! The road is my real passion though. My life hasn't changed much since becoming world champion because I am able to keep things balanced. Winning gives me the confidence to know that I can perform when I have to."
