Race Writeup

Mara Abbot (USA) secure the victory and the overall Maglia Rosa in stage 8 of the Giro Donne. The US national road champion beat newly crowned British Road champion Emma Pooley (Cervelo TestTeam) by 1 minute 27 second, while Judith Arndt (HTC Columbia) managed to beat reigning World Road Champion Tatiana Guderzo (Team Valdarno) for third.

Abbott attacked the peloton on the first of three big climbs of the day. On the cat 2 Passo del Maloja, Abbott went and only Pooley was able to respond.The pair started the second climb together, but Abbott dropped Pooley prior to the Passo Bernina summit. Abbott continued solo to the final climb, the cat 2 Forcola. Abbott steadily increased her lead over Pooley through to the finish line.

Overnight leader Marianne Vos (Netherlands) finished 3 minutes 22 behind Abbott and dropped to fourth overall at 1 minute 38 seconds. Arndt remained second on general classification, 19 seconds behind Abbott, while Guderzo retained her third place overall, 1 minute 05 behind. Vos holds onto the young rider and points jerseys.
