Stage 2 - Giorgia Bronzini wins sprint ahead of Teutenberg

Porcari - Montecarlo Altopascio, 124km 

Race Writeup

Giorgia Bronzini (SAFI PASTA ZARA TITANEDI) outsprinted Ina-Yoko Teutenberg (Team Columbia HTC) and Monica Baccaille (S.C. MICHELA FANINI RECORD ROX).

The bunch faced a second rainy day in Toscana which made conditions tough for all teams. There were a number of breaks created by Rasa Leleivyte (Safi) with American rider Evelyn Stevens and a lone break by Lithuanian Inga Cilvainaite (SAFI)

The early racing was driven by the Americans with the bunch being led by Kristin McGrath (USA) on the climb to Montecarlo. Trixi Worrack (Equipe Nurnberger) was attentive on the Americans wheel to ensure that no break was able to form on the climb and that she was able to keep her Mountains jersey.

Italian RR Champion, Monia Baccaille (Michela Fanini) and Iris Slappendel and Petra Dijkman (Netherlands) did quite a lot of work on the front of the bunch to close the gap the leader. Inga Cilvainaite (Safi) worked hard during her breakaway but she was not able to stay away. The American team again did quite a lot of work on the front including Jessica Phillips (USA). They were joined by the Bigla team led by Monica Holler (Bigla Cyclnig Team).

Toscana is the final tour before the World Road Championships and is often the final preparation race for world or in the case of Regina Schleicher (Equipe Nurnberger) her last race as a professional.
