Vos makes it three victories out of four years in Durango

Durango, Basque, Spain 113km


Race Writeup

Marianne Vos (Rabo Women) used her descending skills to bridge across a gap to join the leaders after the main climbs. She was reported to be 30 seconds behind a leading group of five or six riders after the main climbs of the race. 

The race had stayed together for much of the first half, despite some spirited attacks and the four repetitions of the climb on the small lap, which was based around Elorrio. After the final climb, Patricia Schwager (Faren - Lets Go Finland) attacked and managed to stay away in the transition roads between the small lap and the main climbs. She gained an advantage of just over one minute, before being caught again by the bunch when the race reached altitude.

It was on the penultimate climb that bunch was splintered. A small group of leaders formed, led by Longo Borghini and Moolman. They were joined on the descent by a significant number of chasers, creating a small bunch. The final climb, though reduced the size of the group to a handful. Vos was not there, but used her renowned descending skills to catch the leaders on the 9km downwards section to the finish in the centre of Durango. Her sprint against Emma Johansson looked untroubled, although the pair had already accelerated away from Stevens and Longo Borghini, who finished third and fourth. Moolman crossed the line alone another 21 seconds later after the first pair.
