Premondiale Giro Toscana
Prologue: Campi Bisenzio - Stage Details

The final stage race of the season for ORICA-AIS began with a late night prologue. Tiffany Cromwell and Emma Johansson rode into the top ten.  Cromwell was 6” behind stage winner Marianne Vos (Rabobank Liv/Giant), slotting into fifth place. Johansson rounded out the top ten, 8” off the race lead. 

"Tonight (and I do mean night; the last rider just came in at 10h25) was a technical hot dog shaped course that challenged both speed and skills. It's one of those courses where, try what may, you are ultimately managing your mistakes and keeping the gas down. Tiff did well and managed fifth whilst Emma got tenth. Both could point out as soon as they came in where they could have done better, but really, their rides reinforces they are ready for the real stuff that starts tomorrow." - Sport Director Martin Barras
