On a horrible, wet, cold day, Emma Pooley tried to repeat her 2008 Trofeo Binda victory, but in 2009, she was a marked rider. After letting her make the pace and act as 'carrot' in the distance, the Briton was reeled in on the final lap. An immediate counter-attack saw four riders go away. Despite an effort by Pooley, she was absorbed back into the bunch.
Over the final summit, Emma Johansson and Marianne Vos had a 10 second lead over Kristin Armstrong and Eva Lutz. With only 20km remaining in the race, Vos and Johansson established a small lead over the other pair (Armstrong and Lutz).
Vos proved too strong for Johansson, whilst Armstrong was too strong for Lutz. The first four places were sorted, Kirsten Wild led the bunch sprint for fifth.
